Four More Days

Food: none
Water: negligible
Caffeine: bed-wetter size Starbucks
Sleep: 3 hours

I'm set up real nice for the impending race. No food, no water, only coffee, little sleep. Nice. "Why," you may ask? I don't know. Well, I don't know why I didn't sleep last night - I'm on all kinds of drouges. As for food - I have no milk and very little food at home so I didn't have breakfast this a.m. And water, well, I guess I drank some with my drouges. Coffee was needed to fuel myself since I didn't sleep and didn't eat. Real healthy, O.

I'm heading home for lunch in a few. And to the gym after work for 55 minutes of cardio. And then to the dang grocery so I can eat some dinner.

I don't know why I didn't sleep last night. I am seriously on every allergy/sinus infection medicine known to man. I think I was worried about non-marathon related stuff. Frank has been limping and I am worried about my little baby. So I know that means a cool $500 trip to the vet. Grr.

Now that I've emotionally come to terms with the idea of only running the half, I am not nervous at all. It kind of takes the edge off, and consequently the fun out of it. :( Maybe I am just down because I didn't sleep last night and therefore skipped the training session this a.m. Who knows. It is Monday. Monday = BOO!
