Pre Nanowrimo thoughts vs Pre Marathon thoughts

I feel excited and terrified about my first ever Nanowrimo. I know that I have done my preparation, in so far as this was possible, but I still feel I could have done more. Do I really know enough about my characters? I haven't even finally fixed their main characteristics. I feel dread, because I don't know how hard it's going to be, or how much it's going to hurt. I keep reminding myself that I just have to "show up" each day and write my 2'000 words. I have to believe that I will find my writing groove and that my characters will a) behave and b) show me where they want to go and what they want to do.
And if I get stuck, I will remember the wisdom of a certain 4 year old - "What's going to happen?"
