One week to go! Marathon Monday! Cheer me on! #3800

It is almost here – and yes, I am a little nervous, just because I am so competitive with myself and have a hard time tapering, slowing down when I feel so good. I ran my last long run yesterday and plan on a lot of rest and low miles this week to prep for the big day.

I am in Wave 1
Hopefully near the first 2 corals, not elite, but pretty close to the start.
No headphones, but I figure I am packing it for pre music prep and for the calibration for nike plus coaching (I get “credit” for the miles when I use my “chip”.
We are staying at the Marriott in Cambridge and will find some great Italian place for dinner on Saturday night.
Roxy for dancing after the run? Of course! And then we drive to Vermont to ski for the rest of the week!

AND I need ALL your positive vibes so keep them coming and think of me at 10 AM on Monday!
Whoo hoo!!
