I'm running my first ever big marathon, the Marine Corp Marathon in Washington DC.
The nerves and the excitement are running high!
This will be my first race with my brother, Richard. This will be marathon number 2 for both of us. I have never run in a HUGE marathon before. I think there are 35,000 other runners of the 2011 MCM.
Last night I woke up with a sick stomach.... OH NO!! I'm taking lots of pepper to burn that virus out. I don't have time for this!
