2 nights out to MCM

Today is the first day of the MCM Expo. My first race expo ever... what to expect? I think I might need to roll by the bank and ask for all of their money first, right? Lots of cool gear to be had, right?

I have been going to bed earlier.... around 9. I thought at least today, I would sleep a little longer. Nope. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!

Today is busier than I  had hoped too. Once the kids are on the bus, I will metro down to the Expo, pick up my stuff.... browse, and then race back to be at school by 1:30 to help the kids get into costumes for their Halloween parade.

I talked with my sister-in-law last night and she confirmed what I had been thinking... yes, I am totally over thinking EVERY THING - that is normal, right? What my pace is going to be, what I am putting or not putting in my belt... etc

And the cooler air is coming, so the weather is setting Sunday up for the most perfect weather conditions. I feel so blessed.

Check back today or tomorrow for all of my track information. I am sooooo excited (if you hadn't notice).

I know what you mean about overthinking! I called my brother before my first half marathon and asked him EVERY question imaginable.
Good luck, and have an awesome time!!

Reading this made me laugh. I was OFF THE CHARTS wound up before the marathon. I was in Dicks Sporting 30 times a day looking for a perfect ball cap, an ideal pouch to add to my fuel belt, etc and so forth.

Relax and enjoy the moment! It's your FIRST marathon!
