Oh, yeah...this is TOTALLY me!!!

Heh, a friend of mine on RunningAhead.com posted that for me.  It is SPOT ON! ;)

Today is t-minus 3 days until race day.  I am starting to pack race day essentials, trying to motivate myself to get one last abs workout in, needing to get a couple of errands run in town, and just generally trying to avoid giving myself a coronary.  Heh.

Yesterday I had a nice little 4 mile run.  My legs are definitely starting to feel STRONG.  I'm hoping the knee is good-to-go on Sunday, too.

The past week of sleeping in (thanks, boys) is really helping me feel less edgy.  I'm no longer feeling that frantic "overtraining" thing (which is worse than this "taper madness"--tapering is a breeze compared to how awful that was), now I'm just getting pre-race jitters and moodiness.  Time to get this show on the road. 

I have a confession to make...I had candy last night.  I had to stop at Rite Aid and those bastards have little 1.6oz. boxes of Jelly Belly jelly beans right at the counter.  So I grabbed one.  But they have fruit juice in them...so they aren't completely lacking in "nutrients," right...?

Other than that minor misstep my diet is pretty good...making sure I get extra fruits/veggies, minimally processed meats, healthy carbs, fluids, caffeine...ha!
