I'm sick as hell. I've worked 9-12-hour days for the last 10 days, partying and studying like a college kid, and the result is a bad cold. Tomorrow I'm going to spend my day in my payamas, studying, making my packing list, and sleeping as much as I want. I may go out and get a map of the Philly area to help me plan my explorations, or celebrate my trip by getting an outfit for it . . . but as shitty as I feel right now, I doubt I'll be leaving the house for much more than food. I'm not even worried about my training runs. I just want to get plenty of sleep so I can make it through the race.

It's been a helluva week. I've been so occupied by all the crap going on that I haven't even been able to get psyched up for all the crap that's yet to GO on. Next weekend, I celebrate T-Day with my parents, the following weekend is my birthday and then . . . the monthlong celebration of me is over. The IMOF hasn't been going exactly as I planned . . . but I kinda wouldn't trade it.
