Talk about feeling the range of emotions after hitting the submit button on my registration for the race. From pure excitement to the adventure ahead to my nerves kicking in and thinking "OH MY GAWD, WHAT HAVE I DONE?!?!?". Diving head first into the internet to research, as this being my first time at anything longer than a half marathon, hasnt really been easy or really helped since there is almost too much information to go over. From the types of backpacks, calorie counting, layering of clothes, managing electrolytes, and the mosquitoes.... OH MY!!!
In reality, if there was a podium for the last 3 finishers, I will most likely be in the running... My only real goals are to enjoy the whole experience of this whole crazy adventure each day, all while testing my body its limits and a little bit beyond them too.
Either way I cant wait for this adventure, and to live by my race motto of "Operation: Just Finnish!!!" (Being that the race is in Finland...hehhehehehe)
