10 Days. 10 days from now is Race Day! I am super excited! I am going to blog through my 10 day Countdown, on a few different topics that have been milling around in my head the past few days.
I am feeling a whole range of emotions right now-- mostly excitement at this point. Sure, there are moments when I think, "Oh crap! I have to run 13.1 miles in less than 2 weeks!", but right now I'm still in the excitement phase.
Today's topic of discussion: Dreams.
Everyone tells me that in the days and weeks leading up to race day, it's pretty common to have crazy dreams about the race-- getting lost on the course, the course shutting down before you finish, not being able to find your family after the race, breaking a leg, etc.
I haven't had these dreams yet, but I expect them to come any day now. The trick will be, of course, to not let them spook me too much. I pretty regularly have very vivid dreams. The bad ones really have a way of shaking me sometimes.
So... maybe I'll get lucky and won't have any crazy Race Day dreams in the next 10 days! But when I do, I'm hoping I can laugh about them, rather than panic.
