aaaahhhh!!! it’s the night before I start!!!!!! ahhh ahhh ahhh!!!!! exciting emotional night. spent the day flyering, had an AMAZING meeting at the Boys and Girls Club in Huntington Beach — I was absolutely amazed by how well-behaved the kids were and how excited they were about this trip. Half of them asked me if I had a Facebook page – talk about a generation who knows their way around technology. They were an incredible audience and I hope lots of them keep in touch over the blog and Facebook : )
At night we went out for dinner and then met up with some other CouchSurfers. Very funny guys. Talked about life and the run and school and made lots of jokes. A really nice way to end the week here.
Now I’m more or less all packed up and am going to bed to hopefully get some sleep even though I’ve got 7 months of pent-up energy inside me!!!!! I’m buzzing but I am quite beat so I’m sure I can fall asleep.
Tomorrow: I’ll dip the stroller in the ocean around 7:45 am Pacific Time and start the run from the far end of the Pier at 8 am, hopefully joined by some other local runners. If everything works out properly, both the stroller dip in the ocean and the start should be able to be seen here Hope some of you get a chance to see it live!
Thank you everyone for the support and good thoughts. It goes a long way!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE : )
