Small amount of nerves

I'm starting to get nervous. I just read Robin's 10 Steps to Your First Ever Race Event post. And like, holy cow, am I really going to do this thing?!?!?

Things I'm nervous about:
1. Having to spend all my time in a port-a-potty
2. Having the blister I've been nursing rupture like a blown tire
3. Cramps, cramps, cramps
4. Throwing up
5. The voice in my head

However.....Husband and I are going to carb-load tonight. We're too nervous to do the pasta thing the night before the race (see above #4). Plus, I don't know where I'm going to find a gluten-free pasta restaurant that my entire family is going to want to go to in down-town Chicago.

On top of my nervousness, I am totally excited! I'm ready to Rock and Roll! Are you?

Happy running!


  1. Can't wait to hear about it!

  2. Good luck and looking forward to reading about it.

  3. Good Luck!! Can I track you online? What is the website?

  4. You are going to do GREAT- don't forget to have fun and that in the end, if you finish, you win!
