I have trained by butt off since the first of the year and I really want to go to Virginia this weekend to see my brother and his family. It will be a great trip with my mom and I get to see the ocean : ) I have no plans other than to cross the start line and the finish line. Any times/paces that I had in my head are out the window. I am just going to go enjoy the large race and the view of the ocean. Thanks so much to those people that commented and offered advice. I will blog one more time before I leave talking about all the goods I am taking.
