To my family and friends who will be there physically with me today... THANK YOU.
To my family and friends who will be there with me in spirit/via social networking, online or text messages. THANK YOU.
Couldn't have done this without you guys.
Puke, faint or DNF, this is my first marathon and I am proud of my accomplishments so far. My training could not have gone more perfect and I am ready to handle (smartly, that is) the heat and 26.2 miles that lie ahead of me this morning/afternoon.
Three hours lie between me and the start at Hopkinton.
I'm all in. Now let's do this.
