Day 2: Holy S–t

I picked up my race bib and packet of goodies from The North Face store today. Lucky number 1128! (Or something.) I just like that it starts with an 11.

Here are some of my thoughts and concerns as the race is now less than 48 hours away:

• I am very tired. I have not been sleeping enough/well.

• My left knee… should I even mention that it hurts when I walk but that I can get into a stride when I am running that I don’t feel it? Except when I stop?

• The weather is and will be beautiful.

• Beautiful weather is giving me allergies. Allergies give me asthma. I never should have cancelled the appointment with the allergy doc last month and then not rescheduled.

• I am excited.

• I am nervous.

• I have nothing to wear on Saturday night. NO, really. Today, I bought my perfume that ran out in October instead of a new dress (that needed to be on sale and perfect) because I need to smell like me. I miss my smell. Now I smell goooooood.

• I have a cheering section at the finish line!

• How far should I run tonight?

• Ewww, I have to get some Gu packs. A necessary evil.

• Yay, that means I get to go to the Sports Basement on the way home.

• iPod or no iPod for this kind of race?

• I totally got my new lamp timer to work! It’s light when I come home now.

• Hydrate.

• Smile.

This is going to be fun.
