The Big Day

I have been feeling really nervous these couple of days. I wake up at 5am every morning for no apparent reasons and can't fall back to sleep. I feel my heart pounding but don't know why. During the day I get tired due to lack of sleep but am unable to take a nap. What is going on?

Finally, it hit me. I am experiencing sympathy stress for Jason. His marathon is this Sunday, and although I said all along I neither understand nor support this self-torturing madness, I must really wish him sucess deep down somewhere in my heart. Or I won't be such a nervous wreck, right?

Deep breath.

A marathon, my goodness. Wish him luck from a strange friend of Rachel's.

My husband is also into such odd endeavors and regularly gets up at 6am to go to the gym...why I will never understand.

Thanks Jamie. This being his marathon, he needs all the luck he can get!

I have 100% faith in Jason.
It's no more than a walk in the park for him. By the way, how many miles are in a marathon?

Aw, Lynn, you are such a nice, caring wife! I'm afraid if it were me, I'd just happily snore my nights away as if nothing was going to happen.
