Race nerves or Wedding jitters?

In exactly 24 hours from when I am writing this I will be marrying Brian.  Wow.  I just got even more nervous than I was before.

I know every bride says it - but I CANNOT believe that the day is finally here.  At times it seemed like this day would never some and other times it seemed like the time was just flying by and I could not get things done fast enough!

This morning I went for a final run before the wedding.  My final run as a Miss and my final run on one of my favorite routes.  I have spent so many quiet mornings on that route and I will be sad to not have it right outside my door anymore.


 Someone asked me a great question today -

Will you be more nervous for a goal race or your wedding?

I am more nervous to walk down that aisle tomorrow than I ever have been for a race.  Every time I think about it, my stomach turns to knots.  I am so excited but yet I am so nervous.    Hopefully tomorrow will be exactly like a race - once I get going I will feel fine and the nerves will just fade away.

I am nervous I will trip and fall.
I am nervous I will cry.
I am excited for Brian to see my dress.
I am excited to get MARRIED!

It has been a long journey to get here.  This morning my mom and I went and got pedicures and manicures - that was the final thing on my "To Do" list. 

Red toes to match my red shoes and the red bridesmaids dresses. 

Brian and I wont be leaving for our honeymoon right away so hopefully I will be back with some sneak peak photos!  Thank you everyone for all your help, support, advice and kind comments!

Have a great weekend!!

So excited for you!!! Congratulations! Both my husband and me are runners and we agreed that we were far more worried about our goal race than our wedding. The wedding is pretty much under your control and you know how it's going to end! The goal race is always an unknown in terms of what could happen. In other words, you have nothing to be nervous about! You will be a gorgeous bride and I can't wait to see the photos!
