my race is tomorrow. i am trying to set up my cheap-ass pay-as-you-go cell phone so i can update you while barfing in port-o-potties. ha! i joke. i will not be using my cell phone while puking. i really, really hope i don't vomit. we went to get my race day stuff today, and i have to say, all those serious marathon runners in one place gave me hives. they were very SERIOUS and WALKING BRISKLY. there were also a million people in one place, all hot but wet because it was pouring out, so collectively we were a steamy mess. needless to say, i was glad to get out of there.
so far my portland trip has been awesome; lots of great food, some treats bought for my people, a visit to a yarn store (!), and now i'm getting ready to carbo load and then go to bed early. if i die tomorrow in the race, please make sure you remember me fondly, and that no one makes any reference to my failure on my tombstone. okay, thanks!
