am I race ready?

I know, I know, I'm a bad blogger these days. I have been training for the half marathon, and since I remembered how under prepared I was last year, I wanted to really do some serious training this year. I have been resting these past couple of days, and tomorrow is the big race. I have been carb-loading today, well, this whole week really, and mainly resting and eating many calories today. I have also been doing some housework, just because I know I won't want to do anything tomorrow or Monday even. I read my blog about running the race last year, and I hope to use it as vision inspiration tonight when I meditate, and again in the morning meditating in preparation for the race. I will be driving there alone tomorrow morning, so hopefully I can get some good free street parking, that is something you usually luck into in Birmingham. If I have to pay to park in the deck though, I will. There is a 40%, I think, chance of rain tomorrow, but hopefully it won't start until after I'm finished, I don't think I want to run in the rain. Of course I say that now, but you never know, it could be refreshing. A lot of people have asked for my report after the race, which I hope to do soon after. I was also asked what was on my "Marathon 2010 play list," and since I aim to please, here it is:
