Mbili...That's Swahili for "two".  Which is so that I can tell all the Kenyans out there that they have two days left to get ready for the BIG DAY!!!!


That's right, I'm two days away from my first full marathon!  I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself!  I was really nervous Tuesday and Wednesday.  But I'm better now.  As better as I can be!

I'm picking up my marathon packet today! 

I've also been having marathon dreams the last three nights.

My first dream was that I finished at 5:15 (which is 45 mins past my goal time of 4:30).

My second dream was that I just decided to skip the first 4 miles.  (That should save me those 45 mins!  lol)

My third dream (last night) was that I found out I was pregnant and couldn't run the marathon!  Seriously!?!  My mind is going crazy!

I can't wait to blog about it.  I hope I have good things to share with you!  I wish anyone luck that is also going to be running it! 


  1. Awesome! You'll be amazing! Have a great day tomorrow!

  2. You are going to do great. I did the marathon in 2005 and 2006 in Chicago. One year it was warm, the other year it was 30's and WINDY - I would take tomorrows weather than being freezing cold any day! Good Luck, it will go by fast, the crowd is awesome and it's all mental. It sounds like you are MUCH faster - I finished both of mine a little over 6.5 hours so you've got that going for you! Can't wait to hear about your experience!

  3. Can't wait for the recap!!
