In 24 Hours...

I'll be an hour and a half into my run...Part of me just wants to be running right now and part of me is too nervous to even think about it!! 3 1/2 hours and I'll be on the road!!

Alright…this will be my last post till, well, maybe I’ll try to write a little something when I get to my parents on Saturday after the race (unless I’m heading right back to Minneapolis to go out with my friends). Hopefully I’ll get a race report typed up and posted by Sunday. Although I have roommate drama still going on, and let’s just say someone might be on the street on Sunday or Monday at the latest…:) Am I really that evil?? Well, I could be. I might have to post his latest messages to me. Just to get some other perspective to make sure it's not me that is the crazy one. I've had some friends read them and they say pscycho, but maybe I should let those in blogger land decide too!! I was trying to just live it out with minimal interaction till he’s gone at the end of the month, but the guy is absolutely insane (and he accused me of jumping off the handle, seriously, psychotic!!) and his messages are just so all over the board...I really should just stop reading them, but this part of me, the sadistic part, can't!!

Anyway, I slept so good last night, Tylenol PM is definitely the way to go. I took it at 8 and was fighting at 9 trying to stay up just a bit more, I had been laying in bed watching TV and reading a bit and just slowly drifted off…it felt wonderful. I didn’t use the hand wash thing at the carwash, but did wash my car too, when I had almost crossed that off the list and was going to do it later. I ran the movie back (Chariots of Fire, was OK but I guess I didn’t really fully follow it, it wasn’t quite what I was expecting I don’t think) and stopped along the way at a touchless car wash and they had 50% off cause it’s a new car wash so I got a really good wash. Think I’ll go back too as it did a good job. Anyway, had baked the banana bread, although I think it’s a bit under baked, got my car loaded between last night and this morning and I’m now at work, have been here since 7, and am drinking my Gatorade and water (well actually today it’s Powerade right now, just wanted a change!!) I’ll be on the road by 11, although might make a quick stop at the library for an audio book to entertain me on the way home. I’m going to have the big fill me up breakfast at the cafĂ© this morning (omelet made to order out of eggbeaters with cheese, mushrooms, peppers and ham, hashbrowns and an awesome multigrain toast for $2.90 and it fills me till at least mid-afternoon). Figure that will be good to get me through till it’s time to eat dinner, with maybe some banana bread or a banana in there somewhere…spaghetti and breadsticks with strawberries and watermelon for dessert tonight for dinner and to bed by 9 for a good nights sleep before the 4 am wake up call!! I got about 8 ½ - 9 hours of sleep last night, so I should be good even if I don’t sleep tonight!!
