This is it, after logging over 700 miles since April there are no excuses.

I am ready.

My instestines are probably died blue from Powerade.

I have consumed an entire box of orange GU.

I am on my 3rd pair of shoes this year.

I can describe to you where just about every mile marker on the bike path is located

I ran on ice, in the dark, through the rain, and the heat.

I put my time in, I am ready. One week from today, on October 4th, I will run 26.2 miles....nonstop.

It doesn't really matter at this point when I finish, just that, I know I can and will finish.

There is a ton of excitement and anticipation building toward this run. It will be a life changing doubt.

Because of this training I have lost over 30 lbs. this year, I feel great.

The marathon will be great, I will do more of them, I already know this.

The support from family, the friendships I have made, and the people I have met that have kept me motivated are priceless.

Thank you, it has been a fantastic journey.

Stay tuned for race report and pictures.
