My little marathon counter over to the right there says 11 more days. Dang. Here's the thing, I trained SO hard up until about 3 weeks ago when I injured my knee. I'm not sure how my knee is now because I haven't ran on it. I tried right after my injury and it didn't go well. But I can't discount all that hard training I did before that so I'm gonna go ahead and give it a shot. I've been cross training (yay for Suzie's Boot Camp) for 3 weeks now and I hope that will somehow help me out. I'm just praying that my knee will somehow have had enough rest to get me through 26.2 miles without exploding and that my body is still trained enough to get me to the finish line. I will NOT get in the Shame Van (you know the van that picks up the people on the course who can't finish?) Anywho, I can be a pretty determined person when I have to be and if all else fails, hopefully my drive will get me through -and maybe an insane amount of ibuprofen. Wish me luck!
