Three days to go

Today I am not running in order to rest my ankle more. Bums me out because I love to run on thanksgiving for some reason. My ankle still hurts and I am a little worried about it. Not much I can do other than what I am (or not) doing. I feels a bit better, I just wish it felt a LOT better.

I am going through with my pre-marathon eating plans and getting stuff ready for the trip to Seattle. Last night I got all my running candy out, Sport Beans, Gels and Clif Blocks. It looks like Halloween instead of thanksgiving on my desk! Regardless of how my ankle feels, I will have snacks!

On Friday after I arrive in Seattle I go to pick up my chip and bib. The chip allows you to start at any time by triggering your timer when you cross the start and stopping at the finish. Two years ago I got stuck in the bathroom lines and got a 5 minute late start, but my chip allowed me to get an accurate measurement of my time. My bib is my number, unfortunately they don’t let you customize it like Portland, so no “Besaro” this year. I loved hearing people yell out “Go Besaro!” but that’s ok, I’ll settle for “Go 8734” or whatever I am.

    So sorry I have not commented on your blog, but then again I have not been commented much on any blogs.

    Rest that ankle of yours and just do the best you can with what you have.

    If it bothers you then stop running. But I am pulling for you. Let us know how it goes.
