I am ready for my half marathon! Bring it on!
I got my Garmin, my EFS liquid shot, my belt (this time I am taking it and if it gets on my nerves; at miles 8 Bill will be there to catch it), gum (don't judge), salt pills, other pills I need, Prednisone just in case (I started getting the bad allergies again..head pressure and all the crap), found this VIA Starbucks thing for breakfast (Chris K you are off the hook for the coffee) and 2 Ipods (what? you don't bring 2 just in case?), will need to add sunglasses, hat, shoes and my clothes.
My goals: to run a better smarter race is #1 and if I can do that I know it will be a faster one. So no going out to fast, drink before getting thirsty, no meeting with the freaking wall, finish strong and no puking would be a plus!
Will I be disappointed if I don't do a better time then I did at my first half marathon?
NO DOUBT IN MY MIND ON THIS ONE: YES I WILL BE.
I got a number in my head. I know I can do it.
I wish it was tomorrow. I followed the plan and I rested today (so far).
I am anxious. I did not sleep well last night, was awake at 3:30 am thinking It was time to get to the shuttle. I HATE taper. Tonight I need to sleep so Tylenol PM will be my friend.
The freaking Lakers won. BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
So did you or Did you not?
Get up at an insane hour to watch that little wedding in England?
I did not.
But I did go online to look at pictures and I found some scary stuff.
You would have to pay me to see me out in public with one of those on my head:
|Is that supposed to be a smile?|
|Poor person who was sitting behind the gal in blue|
|Or this one!|
|Low key outfit, you think she wanted to get noticed?|
Have a great weekend everyone!
Thank you for your well wishes and for your advices and for reading!
Good luck to everyone racing this weekend!
(If you are tall, blond, look like a top model, live in AZ, don't have good taste in NCAA hoop team, run insane distances on the TM, say the word freaking a lot, OK that should do it: Please take it EASY )
See you after the race!!!
