Over the past 16 weeks, I've run 576 miles.
My hope is that I'm able to run my first marathon in good time on Sunday.
Please give us safe travels to Orlando.
Please let us have an easy check-in at the hotel and at the marathon packet pick up.
Please let me get a good night's sleep tonight.
Please let my alarm go off so I don't miss the show.
Please let the weather be 55 degrees and either sunny or overcast.
Please no rain or snow.
Please let me not panic when I see the 14,000 other runners.
Please let the people I'm starting with not be too fast or too slow.
Please keep Karen and my Mom safe, sound and happy while they wait by the sidelines for me.
Please keep Kylie and my Dad safe, sound and happy in Atlantic Beach.
Please let me find my rhythm and pace early on and may I hold that pace as long as I can.
Please let me feel strong and capable at mile 8 (my magic mile).
May my legs and feet have strength and endurance.
If my legs give out, let me run from my heart and soul.
Please let me finish.
