In 48 hours ....

I will be one of thousands of runners on the Verrazano Bridge waiting to tackle 26.2 miles.

I'm extremely terrified. And extremely excited.

I have a million and one "what ifs" running through my head: What if I don't finish? What if I don't hydrate properly? What if I chafe? What if I puke? What if the weather sucks? What if I die!?

But I've done all I can do.

Now it's time to run. With ribbons in my hair.

I'll be back Monday -- as a marathoner! (Fingers crossed.)
P.S. -- For those who are wondering, my number is 38048 and you can track me here. Start time is 10:10 a.m. EEK!
