We're here!! My mom and I arrived yesterday, stopped at the race expo, had dinner...and then went to bed! We're so lame, but we were exhausted and asleep by 9 p.m. My mom doesn't drink much and I haven't been drinking with my training - so the one glass of wine we each had did us in. How sad. I now have a lot of sleep under my belt, which is great because I probably won't be able to sleep tonight.
This morning I got up and walked through Grant Park - where the start and finish are. It was sad to see Soldier Field and know that my Bears will be playing in Atlanta tomorrow. Of all weekends!!
Well, I'm off to Valpo to see a few friends at Homecoming. I wish I could stay longer to hang out, but I plan to be back on the road by 7 and back in Chicago around 8. Hopefully I can remember how to get there! It's been awhile since I made the drive from the city to campus, but I'm sure it will come back to me.
This is probably my last post before the big day tomorrow! I can't wait to get to the starting like and start chipping away at 26.2 miles. It's going to be a hot one - but a great race!
