Hello to my three readers! I'm feeling much more optimistic about the marathon. Tomorrow I'm running a part of the course that I've never done before...or even driven. I hear it's pretty hilly so I think it will be good to test it out so there are no surprises on marathon day. Dunno though, surprises can be good. Not sure I want to "dread" the hills if they are really bad. I've been doing my hill training around Soulard so hopefully the course won't be too hard on me. I know running up Olive is going to be killer. Hoping to finish marathon around 5 hours.
