I NEED YOUR HELP!!! (and 8 days till GO TIME!)

I will be running the SURF CITY MARATHON!!!!! I cant believe it is here. I've been talking about it FOREVER and its finally down to the wire.
The knee is a little sore today (expected that since it was worked on yesterday) so I skipped tennis :( bummer to do that but when I woke up I knew it wouldnt have been a good idea. I took my arnica and set out to buy the joint juice.
Got in my car and got a phone call from my cousin. He wanted me to meet him and his roommate for lunch, so i did! It was awesome. I absolutely love both of my cousins, we are all very close, and it was so nice to sit outside and chat forever with these guys. We went to this place called "Champagne Bakery and Cafe" and I had their parisian salad. It was a huge salad with vinagerette dressing, cranberries, walnuts, apple slivers and onion. YUUUUM! I couldnt even finish it all. After that, I went to wal mart and stocked up on my joint juice.
Then, so exciting, I went to my favorite place - Road Runner and got myself arm sleeves. (arm warmers?) anyway, I decided on these because they are thin ( i didnt want bulky thick ones that would make me SWEAT) and they have UV protection (yay!) AND they are TIE DYE!!!!! Yes, I made sure they will match my outfit for next weekend. I'm no dummy! There may be a potential single guy there! HELLO! I also bought myself a pair of running socks. I know, I know, I've been wearing forbidden cotten socks forever, but finally splurged a bit. I also got an energy/hunger control bar that I had on my 20 miler and helped when the stomach started to growl. I have my SHARKIES energy chews (my favorite) and I think I'm all set. I think. They are having the expo starting on FRIDAY and going until sunday, so when I pick up my race day stuff ill puruse and see if there could possibly be anything else I might want. A hat or visor perhaps?? Still not sure about that one.
The last thing I will need is MUSIC for my ipod. Now, this is where I NEED YOUR HELP. Last may when I ran my half marathons, I asked for my sparkfriends to think of songs for me, and during that time that I have "YOUR SONG" on, is where I will dedicate part of my run TO YOU. Yes, YOU WILL BE A PART OF MY MARATHON! Only if you give me songs though!!! So help me. Get me through those 26.2 miles. What fast, upbeat songs do you want me to be listening to when I think of you?????? DEADLINE is FRIDAY! So get your thinkin caps ON!
Eating has been so far so good today. Yesterday was great until the evening, but still not as bad as the past week. I'm a bit hungry now so I'm going to have my new favorite - dannon light and fit yogurt with fresh BLACKBERRIES!!!! Hope you all are having a great weekend.
