I'm freezing out here! I. Need. Those. Tights!

days left till the New York City Marathon!
12 (What???) days left till the New York City Marathon, and I've officially turned into a Marathon Nut! Honestly, I speak, eat, sleep, think and drink New York City Marathon. I'm pretty sure that I'm driving my friends, family and co-workers in-bloody-sane/crazy/wacko. I'd be surprised to have any friends left after this thing is over. I apologize. I honestly do, but I can't stop thinking/talking/dreaming about it. I will probably have to find some new sort of meaning to my life after November 7th. Fingers crossed that The Knee (and everything else) behaves like a good girl...
Want to share in my excitement? Check out this amazing course video of the New York City Marathon course. Ahhh...I'll just get myself a cup of tea and watch this video over and over again. ;) :)
How do you get your mind in 'non-marathon' mode in the last days before a marathon?
As a former sorority girl I think the argyle prints rock! The long sleeves are a great staple item, and the Subzero Jacket is perfect for running in Dutch (cold!!!) weather. Great Fall/Winter line!
There's just one petite downside to this adorable Fall/Winter line. Now you're probably wondering what could possible be 'mwah...not so great' about this line. Well, there is a downside, I tell you:
It will make you max out your credit card. ;)
What is your favorite item from the Runningskirts.com Fall/Winter line?
Yep, that's right... Golden Showers.
Do you have anything to add? Any marathon virgin advice that might prevent me from hitting the wall on my first road marathon? ('cause hitting the wall on my first marathon (being a mountain marathon) was pretty obvious...nothing to do about that)
2 x Powerbar Energy Gel Lemon
...because he's about to be chicked!
Bonus: the worst race pic from the Köln Half Marathon:
So, what do you do when you're sidelined with a knee injury and not allowed to run for at least a couple of days, AND you're 4 1/2 weeks out from a marathon?
1. Walk around in your running clothes even though you know that there's no way that you're actually going to head out for the scheduled 6 miler. Blah. Injuries suck.
2. Watch running clips on YouTube. Watch lots and lots of running clips on YouTube. Yeah, that's me, Miss Masochist.
Good thing about watching those clips: if I rest my knee now I will hopefully be able to at least participate in the New York Marathon. And that would mean running the same race as this guy, Haile Gebrselassie. The first guy to break 2.04 in a marathon. I would be honored to participate in the same race as this running hero. :) Does any one know whether or not he's handing out autographs? :)
Who's your running hero?
