Race Weekend

I'm currently sitting in my hotel in Des Moines...this is sooooo surreal! I can't believe it's here! I went over to the expo and got some great gear!! Plus a couple cute runner girl tshirts!

I am ready!

I had a necklace made to carry Eric's ashes with me during the race. I couldn't do it. Ultimately I decided it was selfish. Eric was poked, prodded, and disturbed throughout his whole life, the least I could do is let him rest peacefully now, let him stay complete and still. I am wearing his name on my bib, carrying him in my heart, and using his soul for my inspiration when I hit that wall.

I am ready.
