In less than 24 hours...

I will be hitting the streets of Dertoit & Windsor Canada running my first marathon!!!

My dad and I will be heading down to the expo this morning.
What was supposed to be a fun filled, exciting weekend has taken a turn. My step mom had a mild stroke on Wednesday so our plans of celebrating after the marathon tomorrow are non-existant. I am ok with that as my dad getting home to my step mom afterwards is more important.
I am a little upset only becauase I've had these visions of my dad and I finishing, me crying, getting our pictures taken together, getting a message, finding our family and us all going out to a big lunch. I am sure this will all happen, minus the finding family and going to lunch part. Chris will be there along with my father in-law, so maybe we will just do lunch somewhere closer to home once my dad drops me off.
I can tell my dad is upset too. Not only do we have the marathon, but my birthday is Tuesday so we planned to celebrate that too.

It's ok though. He's not letting me down. In fact, he is going to be the only person that can keep me sane tomorrow!!

bring on 26.2! I'm ready to take you on!


  1. Good luck, and congratulations in advance!!

  2. Good luck Stephanie! I hope you have a great time.

    I'm sorry to hear about your step-mom. Hopefully you can still focus on yourself a bit and celebrate your huge accomplishment tomorrow!

  3. I'm sorry to hear about your stepmom! But you're right, you will still have a great time :)

  4. I am so sorry to hear about your step-mom :(

    Best of luck tomorrow. I know you are going to do fantastic!

  5. Thank you!! My step mom actaully made it out of the house for the expo. She was slow moving but she seems to be doing well! She won't be there tomorrow which changes our plans, but its ok!
