Here we are in Bethlehem PA (near Allentown) about to go down to breakfast and prepare for our day and get ready for the Lehigh Valley Marathon tomorrow.
We have a fun day ahead of eating, picking up our race bibs, eating, watching football, eating… you get the point here.
My thoughts on tomorrows race. Overall very positive. I haven’t run much over the past week, 6 miles in all. So my body feels much better and happier. My only issue, and one of the reasons I haven’t run, is the top of my left foot where I tie my shoe is still hurting. I’m sure I could run on it, but I am pretty sure it will impact my performance. Nothing I can do about it now.
I am so excited. Tomorrow at this time the race will be starting and I will be on another leg of my journey.
I am excited for TJ also. He has trained so hard, averaging 70 – 80 miles a week. He will do fantastic.
So away we go. I’ll post some updates throughout the day and tomorrow as I can. Unfortunately I got a rental car for the trip and no one under 25 can drive it. I’m the only one over 24 on this trip. So after the marathon, we head back to the hotel and pack the car and I drive 3 hours to my mom’s.
Needless to say, I’ll try to post after I finish, but I imagine it will be a one liner. Lord willing I’ll be done between 10:30 and 11:00 Eastern.
One again, and I never say this enough, THANK YOU for taking part in my journey. I honestly know I would not be this ready if it weren’t for all your help and encouragement.
