My technical clothes are laid out.

Cliff Bloks and PowerBar Gels are stashed in my Camelbak – and the bladder is full of water and in the freezer.

Inspiring music is loaded on my iPhone.

Toenails trimmed. Face shaved.

Coffee set to be made automagically in the morning.

BodyGlide is waiting for me.

It’s still early-ish enough for me to get a good night’s sleep before getting up around 5:30 AM and waiting for dad to pick me up, and take me to the Hillsboro Stadium so I can run my very first half-marathon.

…I need to stop procrastinating and go to bed, already. Not much more I can do at this point.

Good night.
