Well, Scottsdale, but it's the same basic idea. Thanks for the good wishes and I'll think of you all tomorrow! I've talked to Tammy and Elizabeth on the phone today, although I haven't "met" either of them yet. I drove into downtown Phoenix and found the Expo all by myself (folks who know me know that's an accomplishment) and now my running clothes are laid out by the bed, my chip is on my shoe, and I'm ready to roll. One of sis-in-law's friends is running the full marathon tomorrow (sis and her husband are running the half) so this friend is picking me up early for the marathon start. There will be 3 of us and it will be fun to talk shop on the way there. Steve is getting up later to drive sis Michelle and her husband Kevin to the start of the half. Then they'll all bide their time after the half waiting for slow Granny Ellie to come moseying in from the full 26.2.
It has not rained here since October 18. So naturally, there's a 30% chance of showers tomorrow morning, clearing by 3pm. High of 63*, which is good, unless it rains, which will make it feel cold. I bought cheap gloves at the Expo.
Everyone repeat after me: It is not going to rain. It is not going to rain. It is not going to rain. It is not going to rain. You get the gist of it.... you can keep saying it yourself!
Joke: "I hope the rain keeps up."
"So it won't come down."
