The Day Before

We went to the expo yesterday afternoon and got our race packets. I am so frickin' excited! I won't be posting again until tomorrow after the race. Please say a prayer for me if you have a second and are so inclined. Thank you.

I am off to a 6:30 a.m. meeting now. It will be good to sit still and be quiet for an hour. Then the day begins... I had hoped that it would be a quiet day, full of nothing. However, I have many things to get done before the race, so I will be pretty much running around all day. I will be hydrating and taking in lots of carbs... yippppeee!!! Trying to stuff all the glycogen I can into each and every cell of mine.

Thanks so much for all the well-wishes and support. I really really appreciate it. I am pretty much a one topic person this morning, so that's enough out of me!

Only God is unchanging; only He has all the truth there is." -- As Bill Sees It, p. 76

I have always had this odd experience the day before something I have been anticipating happens. Like the day before a vacation. It's a kinda weird limbo feeling. It's hard to describe. And then the day it happens, waking up the world seems different. A little bit of anxiety mixed with wild anticipation. Both days there is this blankness feeling, like there is a white spark that has no where to go.

Anyway. I was thinking about all your preparation for this event and what you might be feeling today.
