It's ready...




The hours, minutes and seconds are ticking by and race time is drawing ever so slightly closer. I spent my evening being productive... ;) I made my t-shirt. :) So you should all come to CF tomorrow am just so you can sign it! :) When I am on the course all by my lonesome and I start to think that I won't make it, I will think of all those signatures and know that my family, as well as my friends (especially those from CFOT) are pulling for me. That will be all I need to get me to that line. Well, that and the promise of my super cool medal, and my T-SHIRT! :)
As a special reminder to myself, I also bought some team bands. You know, those rubberband things that people wear around their wrists? I'm not a huge proponent of stuff like that, but today, when I was standing there looking at the package... a lot of the words hit home with me. I put them on as a reminder to myself. The ones I chose to wear I think reflect qualities that I have, but sometimes lose sight of. The ones I will wear through race day quite simply are: Heart, Pride, Guts, and last but not least, Strength. Least I forget, I shall be reminded. It doesn't hurt that the colors will go well with my race day outfit, which I also bought tonight as well. See? I told you it was a productive evening. :)

I LOVE the shirt! And I have a "team band" from the last motorcycle rally our church held. It simply says "Because We Are".... It is a good reminder to myself of all I am, and all I am meant to be. The name of the Motorcycle rally is "Tougher Than Hell"... and I believe that's one of the things I am.

Way to go on working so hard to prepare for Saturday! You will do swell!

Be Blessed

I'm looking forward to a detailed analysis of the race!

And just picture a nice cold bottle of beer across the finish line. That always gets me going.

Thanks for all the well wishes guys! I hope I do well! I'll be sure to get a post up soon after the race... that is barring the fact that I'm still living... :P

You rock that race, Katie! Shirt is great.

Good luck Katie! Like my dad always used to say when I was worried about something "Don't worry, it will be ok." And it always was -- eventually.

But seriously, have fun. You'll do great.

I have the best cheering section ever! I heart you guys!!!! :) I wish you guys lived closer so I could get you to sign my shirt... but I know while you're relaxing and enjoying your Saturday... you'll be thinking of me... ;)

And KTF, don't doubt that I'm thinking about the after race perks... ;)
