Mama D, Mama K (CD5K), Mama S, Where I'm at now...

Marathon Eve

Surreal: (adjective) having the disorienting, hallucinatory quality of a dream; unreal; fantastic

Heading into the Expo for race bib and packet pick up

Surreal is the word of the day.  This whole experience is definitely dreamlike and magical, but scary and nerve-wracking.  Tonight we wake up at 2:00 am and head out the door at 2:30 to get ourselves to the Epcot lot.  Are we really doing that?!  I guess so.  We’ll line up in our corrals by 5:00 am.  Are we really doing that?!  Yep, that’s happening.  And then we’ll start running in the dark and 50 degree (hopefully) weather at 5:30 am. That can’t be right…. BUT IT IS! In 12 hours we’ll be starting the process… 12 short hours that are going to fly by and stand still all at once.  I suppose we’re as ready as we’ll ever be.

Have I ever run before? I don’t think so.  It all seems so surreal…see above

marathon 3

I don’t even know if I can come up with words.  I keep going back and forth between “we’re on vacation and we’re hanging out” and “oh my god, this is real and we’re running 26.2 miles tomorrow.”  It’s surreal.
