I Think I'm Ready To Rock N Roll...
So I think I'm ready. Did my last run for tomorrow's race yesterday and ran my fastest 3-miler in my training. I think it helped that I had to get back in time to bring Little Man to his preschool field trip. I felt really good and strong during my run, so we'll see. I'm still a bit nervous about losing my foot to PF during the race, but at this point, since it's not hurting right now, I'm going to try not to think about it and enjoy the race. So there. I think I'm just nervous now about getting there. A very early 4am wake up call tomorrow to meet my carpool at 5am! Yikes!
It took every ounce of self-control not to go too crazy in these things. Little Man's "field trip" was to one of those bouncy places. While I LOVE sliding and jumping on these inflatable things, I did not want to end up twisting any part of my body that would prevent me from running my race tomorrow. So I hung out most of the time and watched Little Man and all his 4 year old friends bounce their little hearts out.
Do you sometimes feel like wrapping your body in bubble wrap the week of the race?
Speaking of the race, The Hubs was able to pick up my race packet for me! I LOVE race swag, and I am very happy with this race's swag, from the dark blue tech shirt (ladies' fit), the Peanut Butter flavor GU (which I'm dying to try after the race, of course), the RnR "I Rocked 13.1" window cling (YAY! I prefer window cling over stickers), down to the RnR gear bag. What can I say, it doesn't take much to make me happy. :)
Please wish me an injury free race. I just want to have fun and soak up all the music. My first RnR race and I can't wait!
Who's racing this weekend? What race? Good luck to all of you racing this weekend and I can't wait to hear all about it!
