It all led to this

18 weeks of training,
countless miles,
2 pairs of new shoes,
lots of E-gel, sports beans, & cashews consumed,
many boring Friday or Saturday nights
because of a long run the next morning,
quite a few cuss words uttered as the
dang alarm went off before daylight,
countless miles,
{yes, that deserves a 2nd time on the list}
hundreds of leg raises performed,
gallons of water & Powerade drank,

It all led to this...
And I am excited!
I am ready!
It will all be worth it when it is over!
And I should be starting right about now!
{approximately 5:30 AM EST}
goal time: 26.2 miles in 4:30:00

Update to follow...if I am still alive!
