Moment of Truth
Everything is laid out and ready for tomorrow. The alarm clock is set for 4:30 am so we can beat the crush of people converging on downtown Austin for the 7:00 am start of the AT&T Austin Marathon and Half Marathon. The half sold out its 6,000 entries and they are expecting nearly 6,000 more runners to enter the full marathon. I'm planning on lining up with the 4:00 pace group and trying to hang with them for the whole race. I'm really nervous about whether I can do it, but take some consolation that I've trained well and am healthy. Part of me wants to get it on but another part really doesn't want to do it.
