You gotta have friends

As you know, I'm running the San Francisco Half-Marathon this coming Sunday. I haven't worked out much in the last several years and the only other race I've ever run was a 5K (which was nine years ago) so this will be a HUGE accomplishment for me! It'll probably take me the entire three hours to finish (especially after getting wiped out for virtually all of last week with the most wicked stomach flu known to man) and I'll be panting like a dog and sweating like a man, but it'll be one of those awesome life moments when I cross the finish line!

I have some runner friends who have been cheering me on through the last three months of training, but my BFF has been especially great. In addition to donating to my charity race fundraiser, she sent me this care package yesterday:
BFF Marathon Gift
Gels and an electrolyte drink, the Half-Marathon issue of Runner's World, and a pre-congrats, "go you" card! It was totally unexpected and got me even more excited for the race on Sunday!

Do I have the most awesome BFF in the world or what! :)

Go Weez go!
Don't go slow!
Or else you'll grow!
Worms on your toe!

I think I finally figured out why I didn't make the cheerleading squad in 6th grade. Regardless, good luck! You will kick the ass.

Best of luck! Is this one of those half marathons where you run over the Golden Gate Bridge? I can barely drive over that and the Bay Bridge. I hope any hills near the end are all going down.
