Picking Up My Marathon Race Bib, Aka Shit Just Got Realz

The 5k field is somewhat more competitive:
Out of all the insane-o races that I have done, I don’t think there is another race that I’ve trained so much for, and have given up so much for. [Although I’d do well to give up an all-you-can-eat sushi dinner last night.]
As John Stanton said in his pre-race speech at my very first half marathon in Ottawa, once you show up to the start line, there is nothing to worry about any more.
