And all through the house -
I was pacing and fretting
Like a caffeinated mouse
My shoes have been laid by my bedside with care
In hopes that quite soon I will meet my pillow there!!
Well, I actually am not sharp-witted enough tonight to finish this little bit of parodic brilliance, but suffice to say sleeping will indeed be hard tonight. It's always difficult the night before a race - and this one in particular has got the butterflies going full-tilt. 15K, nearly half of it mostly uphill, with a time limit. But I digress.
I picked up my race packet and shirt this afternoon - the cars were backed up for nearly half a mile from the pickup location - the race sold out at 21,000 participants, which is just totally nuts. My own bib number is well into the 16 thousands. Getting downtown tomorrow morning might end up being a bit of a chore, so I'm thinking we may take the train instead.
Just got done with a big bowl of spaghetti and since the clocks move forward tonight, it's time to turn it in and hope I can fall asleep right away. Going to think good thoughts, pray for nice dreams and with any luck, bounce out of bed ready to tear it up!
