Ran home from work. Uneventful. Mostly so easy it didn’t even feel like running. A little bit stiffer than I was hoping in places – hoping the osteopath can sort them out tomorrow. Booked a session hoping it would be a bit like taking the racecar into the garage for the final tune-up.

The blogs and the forums and the Facebook NYC marathon threads are alive. The hum of excitement is building. People are flying in from all over the world.

I fly on Friday morning.
