Race Time!

The week has come for our big race!!!! 
So how has training been going....GREAT!!!!  I ran 8 glorious miles last Friday and I do believe I am ready for the wonderful 13.1 I will conquer on Saturday.
I have been running in Suwanee for my long runs and it has been quite challenging...which is awesome!  Suwanee is very hilly and it has really built my endurance!  And Savannah is FLAT...I look forward to that!
I got new shoes last week too that I love....I think my favorite part are the bright periwinkle laces...hahah.  They feel great though and it was a good move before the race.
This week I am going to try to run some every day to stay loose and because it is just gorgeous outside and it calls my name!  I am finally at the point, after 8 weeks, that I WANT to run rather than I HAVE to run...which is a really, really good feeling!
Friday morning, Zach, Kaitlin, the Kids, my Mom and I are packing up and heading South!  I am so very excited to run around such a gorgeous city and to accomplish another goal I have set for myself!  I wasn't sure if it would be possible to run this soon after delivery of my Little Man...but I am proof that ANYTHING is possible! 
Savannah here we come!
