Myrtle Beach Marathon!

I have been counting down the days until the Myrtle Beach Marathon, because we get to go to the BEACH!! It's been over a year since I've been to the beach, any beach at all (the last beach I was at was on our cruise last year, it's hard to believe it's been a year since then). I am sure you all feel my pain. But after living in Florida for almost 5 years and having the beach accessable in 15 minutes, I would certainly take that over snow and cold. Our beach weather doesn't look great though upper 50's and low 60's. Good weather for running a marathon though!

Marathon 2 of 12 is the Bi-Lo Myrtle Beach Marathon. The course goes right past the house we are renting, which totally makes my day, because have you ever tried to follow someone who is running a marathon? It's not easy driving around trying to figure out where they will be and where you should go to watch them. I wish Dave's Nike GPS watch had some sort of tracking divice on it, that would be very helpful. Anyway, we are lucky this time, we can just watch from the house and then head to the finish line!

I don't know if Dave is getting nervous, but I am! I always get nervous before his races and before we travel, this is both, so I am extra nervous. I know I will start to feel better once we get on the road tomorrow. I am sure Dave is feeling pretty good about the race. He did great at Miami and has been training consistently for Myrtle Beach.
