For a while at least! :) Krissy and I knocked it out at a 9:03/mile pace. I feel good about Sunday. There is no way I'm not making it across that line and getting that "Finisher" shirt and medal. Oh, I plan on wearing the shirt to school on Tuesday! I may even have to wear the medal too! Ha! I know everyone from Wilder will do awesome and I'm glad to have a group of ladies at school who understand running and give me other people to share accomplishments and complain to. Only other runners understand the true meaning of 'good days' and 'bad days'. Today was a good day! I hope Sunday is the same. If not, oh well. Life will move on. But I will finish, that's for darn sure! More motivation...
