Time to Run!

I am sitting in my hotel room right now, anxiously awaiting the start of my marathon tomorrow. William and I arrived yesterday after an 840 mile, 14+ hour journey. The last 40 miles alone took us a little over two hours to complete. I had never seen so many cars in one place in my life, let alone at a stand still on the freeway. Every road coming and going was barely moving, which was amazing considering it was only 1:00 in the afternoon.

We are actually in St. Charles, about 30 miles or so from Chicago. The starting line for tomorrow’s run is just over a mile from the hotel and I know right where I need to go. I gathered all of my gear today and have my morning all planned out. I think I am ready for this. I have been training for this for a long time and I am ready to run. Less than 12 hours to go!

Finding My Way Back

After a crazy month, we are finally making our way back to a life that resembles some sort of normalcy. I have so many things that I wish to share with you and I cannot wait to get back into a regular blogging routine. Free Wi-Fi is one one my new friends. I will have to get to know him a little better and will do my best to meet with him on a regular basis. For now, though, I must go to work. I just wanted to hop in to say Hello, I haven’t forgotten about you. I have missed you terribly and look forward to catching up. Until tomorrow…
