Getting Excited!!!!

I can't believe that Nike is only 4 days away! I'm not as nervous this time around since this will be the 2nd time; I'm just really excited; Like hard-to-sleep-already excited. I remember how much I really enjoyed it the first time, even though I was woefully unprepared and in pain for much of it. So this time it should be all the better!

Saturday, Sis and I are taking the Ferry into SF and plan to pick up our packets and have a great lunch somewhere. My Sis is actually working Saturday night but she hopes she can get off a bit early. We'll need to leave by 5:00AM to drive, park and comfortably get to the starting line on time.

I'm really shooting for a time around 5:30 - 5:45; and I'm hoping that my sis can keep up with me for the first half, she's a faster runner than I am, but hasn't done any distance training, and I'm really not about to ditch her in favor of getting this time. Actually, if I have a slow 1/2 half, it will be interesting if I can get in some negative splits. That would be cool.

So in reality, the goal is just to finish and enjoy it. I should really leave the any timing goals to Atlanta in March, where I'll have some serious Winter training done and I will be running on my own.

I'm starting to think about what race I want to run this Fall....I'm still feeling that Chicago is calling my name!
