My lovely friend Sophia is a news anchor and when she got done kickin' the Boston Marathon's ass on Monday she filed this story.

Which made me officially nervous, excited and scared all at the same time... somehow when she said "My friend Coleen's first marathon is on Saturday" it made it really flippin' real. I want to laugh and cry all at the same time but I'm not sure if that has anything to do with the race or my PMS. My parents get here tonight, and I'm sure my Dad will help calm me down.. he says he never gets nervous anymore before a race. I guess when you've been doing it for 30+ years, you know what to expect.

AND...you're not just running a marathon. You're running a TRAIL marathon! You are awesome! I've run 11 marathons and am scared to attempt a trail marathon. Best of luck and enjoy yourself!
