I am actually very relaxed and enjoying my day off and honestly have only checked the weather 3 times since I got up this morning - down a great deal from yesterday I can’t control the weather - only prepare for it. 50’s and clouds and chance of rain - no problem.
I am officially packed - I have watch, music player, nook and phone all charged up for the big event. Race gear packed - Sports bra (very important), shirt, shorts, shoes, bondi band, hat, sunglasses, tape, scissors, Clif Bloks, baggie, klennex, lip gloss (girls gotta look pretty), oh and most importantly I packed some extra CONFIDENCE. In the shower this morning I had a nice chat with myself - gave myself a good talking too and we got it all worked out. What fun tomorrow will be when I go out and finish what I started. I can’t wait. I am as prepared as I am going to be and I have done what I should - well not the last two weeks or so but still I feel prepared enough to cross the finish line. Maybe not before they take it down but I will complete 15.5 miles tomorrow all before my massage.
My BFF offered to bring a wheel barrel in case she needed to come get me - TRUE FRIEND SHE IS! She even offered to steal a horse and come find me on the course if I needed her help. I can’t wait to have her cheering me on. She is a very good motivator for me. I love my BFF! She is AWESOME!
I decided not to take my computer with me - I already have too much stuff to carry and my laptop would put me over the edge for sure.
I don’t need anything more to carry. I have my running bag with all my running stuff and a big back pack with all my non running stuff and I will have a bag from the grocery store - fuel for the morning of. The hotel has wonderful coffee and that will be ordered the night before for an early delivery so I can get rid of it before race time if you know what I mean
So I am signing off now and will report back on Sunday. I might try to post from my Nook Saturday evening but not sure how that will work but I will try it.
Have a great weekend - get out and run some tomorrow morning - it will make me feel better to know that my friends are running with me in spirit.
