It's 4:53 am in Traverse City and what am i doing before the race.

Not sleeping.....

So, thank goodness for the biz center in the hotel.

At least i can let the family sleep, cause my tossing and turning couldn't have been helping.

On the plus i did get at least 5 hrs of sleep. More than enough and didn't sabotage of today's efforts with greasy food last night.

Maybe i should cancel the 5:30 wake up call???

i swear the entire hotel is just runners here. Everywhere you look....runners legs.

i think i'm really understanding how this is a marathoners marathon, and i'm getting that "i'm the most out of shape guy here" feeling, that i had waaaaaaay back April 1, 2006 at the first 1/2 Mary.

i was able to stroll through my high school gym. It was a nice walk through the past. Last time i was there, was 21 years ago, i won a car then. Yesterday, i received a nice technical shirt and carb bar. So not a car but less of a taxable burden.

Anyway, this is about as witty and thoughtful as a man can be at 5:02am.

It's the prequel.

thanks for reading

Must be exciting! The Friday night before Chicago last year, I think I slept 3 hours at most. Good luck!

I'm thinking about you...I know you're more than halfway finished by now, so I can't wait to read the update with your finish time.

Good luck! I doubt you are the most unfit guy there, and you will do great.

That's right- Lynn Hansen DID mention that you were the car winner. What kind of car was it?!
