We made it here just fine.

Figured out how to get from Queens to Manhattan and onto the expo before it closed. I had forgotten my camera in the room, and the expo was quite spectacular. Was in and out of getting my bib, my chip and my goodie bag in no time flat.

Have a bit of an issue. When my brother in law dropped us off at the airport, I went around the back to get the bags and just as I was popping the lid, I heard my sister say "wait!!" Too late. One of the bags came tumbling out and the edge of it landed square on the top of my foot. I have a nasty deep bruise but its far enough up that it shouldn't be an issue. Its just really sore and this morning its a bit blue. I iced at the airport and that probably helped some.

Ran my mile this morning, and my calves are sore from all the walking up and down stairs at various subway stations thru-out Manhattan. We certainly got our walk on last night. Today shouldnt be too much walking as once my niece and Nacole get here we are taking the big 5 hour bus tour all over the city. Tomorrow it will definitely be a cab day.

The weather here is fabulous and the high on Sunday is to be 53. Should be perfect.

I am nervous as hell, but I guess that is to be expected. Saw the Queensboro Bridge. The incline is indeed mountainous...I will be walking a lot of that I am sure...

Peace Out.

I want to be a part of it - new york, new york
These vagabond (RUNNING) shoes, are longing to stray (KICK A)
Right through the very heart of it - new york, new york

I wanna wake (RUN) up in a city, that doesnt sleep

Just like you've pushed through some of the tough times you've had this year, I'm sure that inner strength will get you through the tough parts of the course.

You've worked so hard for this, no matter what happens you have a lot to be proud of.

Good luck!
