Wow, I can't believe the week has flown by. I have felt a bit emotional all week and feel my neck is totally weirding out today...feels like a pinched nerve. WHAT??? Hubby has been swamped and working way too much!! Trying to keep it pulled together and not get overwhelmed with the many hats I have been sporting these days! So I am guessing it just stress.
OK...so now let's talk race day strategy. I NEED one! I am excited but trying to help myself be OK with the "what if's" of running. Of course I want a perfect run with GOOD time, but know that may not happen. I am little worried about the 70+ weather and running with a new ipod for the first time. I have a nano which straps on my arm but my hubby won a SMALL, I'm talking thumb drive size ipod?? He finally just last night around midnight downloaded some music and showed me how to use it! I so wish I would have had time to run with it, but I did walk today with it and think I will give it a shot. Sunday will be my first long run of the year in HEAT. Trying to figure out what food to pack and when to eat/drink??? I will be heading out at 6:30 a.m to go pick team members and probably won't run until around 11:00. So I will be getting in and out the car cheering on teammates until my TIME comes to warm up and RUN!! I am thinking of eating something around 9?? There are ribbons to be had...so I am hopeful we can place in top 3 women's teams??
It will be a little bitter sweet as my peeps and hubby just left to go to the grandparents. They are SURPRISING hubby's mom for her 60th b-day. So I will miss my crew as last year they cheered me on and they were so so cute each holding signs saying "we love you". So I will run, fast and hard so I can call with a strong race report. Looking forward to a great day with a bunch of great ladies! Hope you all have a great weekend as well. I know many of you have some long runs on the agenda. Good luck!
