a big ol' bag of marathon treats.
I don't know why this bag of loot makes me so happy, it just does. On my way to the expo to pick up the race packet today, I overheard several women talking about this being their first marathon. The first one is so exciting! This will be the first marathon in a long time that I will run all by myself. I've always had Mr. Bickerson and/or my friend, Andrea with me for entertainment and motivation. So, although I know it's uncool to wear headphones during a race, I'm going to take along my shuffle just in case I need my own brand of musical inspiration to make up for the lack of a running buddy.
