100th Bay To Breakers 12K

If I were writing a status on Facebook right now it would read: I am so excited I can't wait!!

Brief Description of Race
"Bay to Breakers 12K, celebrating its 100th consecutive running in 2011, has been named by ESPN one of the top things every sports fan must do before they die. Founded in 1912, it is one of the oldest road races in the world and is renowned for its truly unique and irreverent character. World-class athletes share this course with runners, walkers and some of the most outrageously costumed participants from around the globe."

I have never been to San Francisco but it has been on my list of places to visit.  The last time I made it out west my husband and I went on a 10 day tour of Washington State.  It was by far the coolest most beautiful place I've been to (Mount Rainer, Mount Saint Helens, The Hoh Rain Forest, The Coastline, Seattle, The Glass Museum, and lots of really super tall trees the height of sky scrapers it seems - you need to crane your neck to see how tall they are).  The mountains on that side of the country make the mountains of VT and NH look like hills ( I lived in VT for a year and loved it.  I also spent lots of time in the White Mountains of NH). 

The Bay to Breakers 12k will be my second race ever running in my life.  My first race will be the St. Patty's Day Blarney Stone Dash 5k  - I just spoke to someone in charge of updating the on line form for the St. Patty's Day race and it should be on line sometime this evening - I'm patiently waiting and I'll try and register for that race tonight.

My goal for tomorrow is to run a consistent 4 miles.  Hope I can keep the volume up on the positive thoughts in my head and they drown out the negative ones. 

I'm going to do this no matter what!

Update:I had a conistent 4 miles! - It was hard at times but I worked through it.
