The day before the marathon

How lucky are we? Our hotel is just about 10 minutes away from the start line of the marathon. I’m so glad we went out looking for it today so we don’t have to worry about finding it tomorrow – even though I’m sure there will be tons of people in tights we could just stalk the *pineapples* out of anyway haha. After we had found what we were looking for we sat down at this cute little breakfast place and had brunch.

After brunch my mom realized she had forgotten the most important thing. Cappuccino. So we found another place to sit down at so she could get her beloved coffee. I’m not a huge coffee drinker, so I just ordered a cup of hot chocolate. Boy was it delicious!

We didn’t walk around too much before we went back to the hotel. Let’s just say we learned from yesterday’s expedition. After a couple hours of relaxing in our room we went out again. Walked around a little, then sat down for dinner. We ended up at the same place as yesterday because we are lame like that haha. Today we had tagliatelle with tomato sauce and basil.

I think I’m pretty much ready for tomorrow now. Just need to figure out what I need to put in the “post-race” bag. I am so excited! Wish us luck, you guys! Next time we talk I’ll be a marathoner!
