Leavin' on a Jet Plane...

It's here! The Day of Travel.

I woke up groggy around 7:45 and couldn't drag myself out of bed. Whuh-oh. I reset my alarm for 8:15 and shut my eyes and of course, it seemed like a second later that 8:15 had arrived. Eep. Hopefully this doesn't mean that I'll be too tired for a 6:30am start time tomorrow morning?? Surely not.

I checked outside - SO foggy and cold! - and put on some warm running gear. I ran around the park near our apartment.

44 degrees - ack!! It'll be at least 10 degrees warmer tomorrow.

slowwww poke.
I was running comfortably. I didn't want to push myself. I can tell that my back is still a little sore so I'm going to take some acetaminophen before we get on the plane to help. I put on my compression socks immediately afterwards, and will wear them on the plane to help with leg swelling.

This is my "I guess I'm ready?" face.
So guys... here I go. The next time you hear from me on this blog, I'll have run a marathon!!
