1. HOUSE STUFF:
Our current home closed and to be NICE to the buyers we moved out under the 2 days we had contracted. Yesterday was spent packing, moving, stuffing, organizing, cleaning, packing, cleaning, packing, cleaning, you get the idea. Special thanks to Muscle Man, Uncle Marky and Tall Grandpa and Grandma. Although I was on my feet ALL DAY I did not lift anything or really help load the truck. Around 6:30PM Muscle Man and I said a collective goodbye to our First Home. On my way to my parents house I heard the song "The House that Built Me," by Miranda Lambert HERE this song hit the radio at the perfect time. Yes I am a BIG SAP!! I shed a tear as we pulled away.
We got GREAT news that our paperwork for our New House has been approved and we should be signing today or tomorrow and closing Monday or Tuesday. YIPPEE moving into a new house with stairs just days after a Marathon :) LOL such funny timing, but everything happens for a reason.
2. TRAINING AND RACE NUMBER
I did not get my training run in, but I figure having been on my feet all day was enough. I am EXCITED to run easy with Muscle Man in the neighborhood I grew up in today. LAST RUN before the big day. I will post the details to track me on race day if you are interested. I am #797 which a high school friend reminded me is the year I was born '79' and the year I graduated high school '97'. But I crunched it in a different way:
23 is 2 3's
2 3's is 33.... and you know how I love 33.. it is bound to be LUCKY..
3. EUGENE MARATHON:
Have I mentioned that I am EXCITED for this Marathon? I remember how I felt the week before my First Marathon. I was a NERVOUS wreck, all I could think about was the race and whether I would finish. This week I am sleeping like a rock and all I can think about is FINISHING with a huge dimpled smile on my face. I have played the finish over and over in my head, all with the same positive result. I APPRECIATE all the positive comment and words of encouragement. I plan to read these comments over and over in the nights to come. 3 Days to Marathon Redemption.
