Welcome to all my new followers. So many of you joined in for the Jelly Bean race, and I hope I stay interesting enough for you to keep reading! I've been a bad blogger friend, but I will get around to visit your blogs as soon as I can.
I leave for Champaign in a few short hours and still haven't even decided on a race outfit. Somehow the royal wedding took precedent this morning?! The weather is looking good for the Illinois Marathon, but I'm not counting my eggs yet. We'll have comfortable temps, escape the rain, but will have to fight through some spring wind. I'll take it.
Every run this week, I have envisioned the Finish Line... the loop around the stadium, the final climb to the entrance, and the dash across the football field to cross at the 50-yard line. That part I've got down... it's the rest of the race I'm unsure about!
