The thought of leaving for Chicago to run a marathon is enough to give me a case of the nerves. Did my 5 months of training prepare me well for the race? Was I crazy to attempt this the same year Violet was born? Is there going to be wind?!? But mostly all I can think about is how I will be able to stand being away from Violet for 4 days. She's so fun right now, changing every day. I think that if she can gown and learn things at a breakneck pace, I should be able to maintain 10:16 for 26.2 in order to finish in 4:30:00.
I'll miss you this "squeekend", Violet. Have fun with Dad, Mom will be home soon.
