Falmouth Road Race

I am still beating a dead horse with this Road race thing I know...But I am seriously stressed out. Yesterday I decided to drive it and take pictures of the mile markers so I know when the next one is coming. It starts out hillier than I remember but also sunnier than I remember so please pray for clouds and dry air on Sunday.
When I drove over the finish line I realized I am a nut and will be nuttier when and if I finish. I could feel the emotion and I was just driving by the finish line.I am going to drive to Hyannis and try to get a small hydration pack to carry water in an effort to keep me from passing out. There isn't anything else I can do at this point to ready myself but try to calm the nerves, eat well and get some sleep.

Jenn, eat lots of veggies the day before,,,they will keep you hydrated better than water!!! (Well drink water too, but the veggies hydrate your organs better!! ) I got that advise from my friend who writes for Running magizine and she was an olympic trials winner in the last olympics!!! You're gonna do fabulous!! You ROCK!!!!

Hey, seems like everyone is nervous about the race. Both the triplets and the twins at Friendly's are too, but just do what they say. It doesn't matter when you finish just that you do.-Thinking of you!!!
