As Lam pointed out (thanks, Lam!), my half-marathon this weekend is actually on SUNDAY; not on Saturday! This means I can get in an extra day of recovery time before hitting the pavement on race day! Hahaha, I have no clue why, but Wilson and I were CONVINCED that the race was on Saturday (despite weekly emails from the race organizers referring to race day as "Marathon Sunday"). How pissed would we have been to show up at Penn Station in time for a 5:00 a.m. train Saturday morning only to find out we were 24 hours early for the free ride to the race?! HA. Get it together, Irish! And thanks again to Lam for pointing that out :)

Hahaha...oh Irish, you totally crack me up! You're so welcome! I totally thought you knew but maybe had temporary amnesia from your bad concussion. I was actually more worried about your health than you missing race day because I figured at some point you'd find out. (Hey, can't help it, I'm a's ingrained in me!)

Hope you're feeling better by the day and totally psyched for race day. I know I am. It's a very scenic course, totally flat, and it's supposed to be in the 60s...perfect running weather. Ooh, I can't wait.

I'm glad Lam came to the rescue, Wilson might not have been so pleased. Rest and get ready to rock it on Sunday!!!
