I've got this marathon on my mind...and I can't help it!

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?

I suffer from that disease as well! I'm three weeks out from mine now and all I can do is think about it. Probably a pretty common illness among marathoners!

Have I maybe mentioned I am slightly jealous.

I say think about it every waking moment and dream about it too. Seriously it's NYC!!!
