Post title is my new favorite song. It's by Ok-Go and I'm planning on listening to it many times between now and tomorrow. Just occurred to me that if all goes well, I should be finished running about 24 hours from now!
I'm not nervous about the actual run. I think I've trained better for this race than I've trained for any other race. It's more the stuff around the race (getting there, not being late and so on) that has me a little keyed up. Think I'll apply the serenity prayer here: God grant me the serenity to accept what I can not change (that it's almost time for my period, that the race starts so early), the courage to change the things I can (get address for the BART station instead of worrying about finding it!), and the wisdom to know the difference!
So what am I hoping for out of this race. I have 3 levels of goals. My first one is to break 2 hours, which I think is pretty doable, although the route looks like it goes through the Presidio twice, which is quite hilly. Second level is a sub-1:55. Third is a sub 1:50. I think of them like getting a B+/A-/A+. Of course, I haven't done any speed training, so the sub 1:50 thing is not very realistic, but it's fun to dream...
Time to finish packing (after finding the BART station address) and head on out!
