Only 16 days to go!

That's it...
16 days
until I run for 13.1 miles or 21.09 kilometers.
Every time I think about I get more and more nervous. I know I can do it (not that I've run that far before), but I just need to stay positive.
This weekend, The Husband and I are headed to his parents house for Thanksgiving dinner. We're going to take the opportunity of having babysitters to go for the long run. It'll be the longest distance I've run.
We're going to do a whopping 10 miles (or 16.1 km). I'm going to figure out how to fuel myself for this run because I was feeling horrible after my last run of 12 km. I'm going to go with the candy approach and sugar up with that instead of using gels or chews. I know candy works with my system.
I'm thinking of going out to buy one of these to hold my candy during the race. I'm not sure what the temperature is going to be so I could be wearing a t-shirt or long-sleeved shirt so I can't guarantee there will be a pocket.

I'm also starting to work on my Half Marathon iPod song list. I'm going to have to use it because I find it distracts me from what I'm doing. If I don't use it, I'll be more focused on how much everything sucks. I need to be able to sing while I run (or at least mouth the words while I'm gasping for air)! Any good songs you love listening too right now?
I'm kind of scared for what will happen after. The run is on a Sunday and I have to work on the Monday. I'm hoping I'll be able to walk. Kindergarten chairs don't lend themselves to comfort for adults.
Anyone else training for a big run (5K's are big runs too)! How is it going??
