I got a 6th floor hotel room, just hoping to see a sunset. I very rarely see such a thing. My ipad picture thru a window doesn't do it justice.
The marathon is not until tomorrow. They gave me my finisher's jacket at packet pickup. Sort of takes a bit of the thrill out of it.
I never know how fast or slow I'll go in a marathon. But I think if I go a bit slow, I can still be in the car and heading home by noon. And then I can lay on my bed and read and nap the rest of the day away. And go to work again on Monday.
What will be good about this race? I know I'll have little conversations with others. I know I'll experience moments of mental freedom. I know I'll admire the many people who do marathons much slower than me.
