Day before race day

I'm packing my bags for my trip to Vail today. One of my friends from the running club is meeting me here after her run. She will leave her car and we will head out in mine. We will meet another bunch of us at a mall up in the hills - for some shopping and lunch, and then make our way across the pass to our hotel, race expo, dinner, etc. What fun!

You know, I feel I need to say that I only have my own experience, strength, and hope to share here. I have only my own story. My hope is that my sharing of my own experience, strength, and hope is helpful to you - or someone. But I can't change my story to make it more palatable to anyone.

This post is bringing me down, man. So, I will go paint my toenails blue, to match my running dress, and get ready to get the heck out of here.

Woo Hoo! My 10th (and maybe last?) half marathon tomorrow!

Blue toenails sounds like a great plan! :)

I think I want to paint my toenails today, it's officially been a year since I've done it


Have a wonderful trip!

When I started blogging I said right off "heroin" or "stealing", I didn't try to soft peddle it. It is what it is, and it's ugly. Now everyone says "opiate problem" (Huh?)

I think you're groovy and far out. Don't let the Man get you down. Keep on truckin'..

Help, I can't stop...:)

I hope that you have a great time,MC. What you share is powerful. I appreciate that. Life is good today!

I feel bad for all the women who will show up at the race today, see you, and think to themselves "DAMN...I could be wearing a running dress???"
It does sound like fun Mary!
Well except for the running part.

I am officially wishing you the BEST of luck in your race.

I like just about everything you write. Some of it is not pretty, but isn't that why we write?
Maybe if you can paint each toenail a different shade of blue. Would that help?

Best of luck, Mary! I always enjoy reading what you write, that's why I keep coming back.
