To all my local readers: Any and all crowd support is welcome, and will be received gratefully. I’ve appended a link to my pace chart, although everytime I look at it I think, perhaps I should have adjusted those times by 10 minutes upwards across the board, given how much trouble my calves and shins have been giving me the past several days.

Race day wardrobe: gray RaceReady shorts, light pink tee-shirt or bright pink singlet (depending on weather), green little G, Nike Elite Zoom’s, pigtails (brown, curly), and a smile (alternating with fierce look of determination).
Brooklyn spectators: I’ll be wearing an orange bib, which means I’m funnelled up the left side of the street.
