My bags are packed and by the door. My race confirmation is printed and in my wallet. My race-day shoes are on my feet (I don’t want to risk having the airline lose them). I am as ready as I’ve ever been for a trip.
But first, a big thank you to each and every one of you for your e-mails, comments and words of support and encouragement over the past four months as I’ve tackled this insane quest. Your support has helped tremendously.
I’m not taking my laptop with me, so I won’t be posting to my blog while I’m gone. But I’ll post my results on twitter (@hokgardner) and on facebook (heather o’keeffe gardner). I’ll have a full report when I return on Tuesday. I’m guessing it will include how I cried from sheer joy and excitement and overwhelmed-ness many times during the race.
I’ll be carrying you all with me on my run. You’ve helped to make this journey special. Thank you.
And I’ll catch you on the flip side.
