Excitement. Anxiety. Eagerness. Nervousness. Anticipation.
These are just some of the feelings going through me as race day approaches.
I'm putting in the last couple of miles later tonight (at a very easy pace) and then it's rest/carbo-load before heading off to San Diego tomorrow morning.
I'm also re-dedicating this marathon to my father.
It's been 3 1/2 years since we tragically lost him.
I still miss him every single day.
I'd like to think he's still watching over me from beyond somewhere, but there are times I feel really alone.
I do know this though...I would not be the man I am today if it were not for him.
He's the one that gave me the heart, strength, and determination to do what I'm doing.
And run, walk or crawl - I'll finish this marathon in his honor.
See you guys at the finish line.
