11 Days To Go!

Starting to get a little nervous - not really worried, as I was able to complete a Eugene Marathon Logo 10 mile race with plenty of steam, just nervous... I suspect these pre-race jitters are part of the overall excitement.
11 days to go!
Today's paper said there was a 10% increase in registered runners. So far, 7000 have registered for all the events. Race director predicts there will be 3,000 finishers in the half-marathon and over 2,000 in the full marathon.
It seems the half-marathon is steadily becoming a favorite race for all runners.
Tomorrow will be my last long training run before the event. My challenge is to beat last years time – even if only by 30 seconds... Wish me luck!
