Leavin’ On a Jet Plane

Some major traffic, and a few tears later, I’m here at the air port waiting and ready to get this show on the road.


Can we just talk about how much of a GIRL that I am.  I cry every time Zach or I leave on a trip now.  Who am I? 11 days…11 days.

The flights about an hour delayed, but that’s why I’m flying Friday and not Saturday, right?

So, I’m armed with my Udi’s sandwich, thinkThin snack bars, sparkling water, starbursts and chocolate to get me through to Saint Louis.  I think I’ll make it.

I want to send some MAJOR love and major thanks to everyone who sent me well wishes today.  I hope you all know that it means the world to me, and that you guys will play a BIG part in my crossing that finish line Sunday.  You are all such an inspiration and I’m thankful everyday I started this blog.  But ESPECIALLY on days like Sunday when I need the boost of moral :).

So — let’s get this show on the road, right?


Question of the Night:  What’s your favorite motivational quote, song, ANYTHING that gets you through races or tough work outs?

I’m gonna need em! 🙂

  1. Don’t cry! you’re going to have an amazing race and then before you know it you’ll be back with your buddy! Happy thoughts!

    Your plane food sounds amazing BTW.

    Sometimes during long runs, I’ll think of Dory from Finding Nemo and keep repeating, “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, ” in her voice of course.

  2. I concentrate on what will happen when I have finished, how I will look back and have survived, and what will happen and then sort of work on going into the picture (it makes no sense when I write it down).

    Good luck with the race x

  3. Good Luck! Remember when I ran the Shamrock. Never did an official run before that! I had the Rocky song on my Ipod…to motivate me. Maybe a little too old for you, but it got me to the end! Again, good luck and you got this! 🙂

  4. I always pack my shoes in my carry on, in case they lose my bags – at least I can still run!
    Try to come up with a mantra for your run – like “one more step” and repeat it whenever things get tough!
