Well, I'm excited.....nervous, but excited. I've gone over the itinerary, studied the map....and now, I'm ready. Actually, I haven't been training as hard as my first half-marathon in Buenos Aires in 2005, but this one should turn out okay. To be sure, this 'race' is more of an informal get-together.
So, we'll see what happens. There should be plenty of coffee plantations, clouds, sun, and quizzical looks from the Nicaraguans. I may see some howler monkeys and, hopefully, the finish line.
...then, I can gorge myself with buffalo wings and pizza in time for the Super Bowl... Go Giants!
