The Day Before



Big day on tap for tomorrow! Weather forecast for the race is a starting temperature of 16 (supposed to feel like 8) and warm up to 23 (and feel like 13) and some snow showers of course! Yet after a few days of running recently when it has been below zero with the wind chill this should not be too bad. Actually I think it is good that we will have the frozen conditions versus the mud!

All in all I am pretty excited about the whole thing! Training is done and went good and I will be out there with my pals on the course! You get a bunch of us chatting and the miles are sure to fly by. No crazy time goals for this one, just to finish, feel good and have fun!

Tonight I got to pack up my stuff and try to make sure I bring anything I may want. I am planning to relax this evening and actually refrain from any Friday night beer. I will save the beer for after the race when we head to Winking Lizard to celebrate our conquering of the ultra distance!!!!

-------------------
Last night I hit the Don Pablos for some mexican beers/margaritas and food before heading over the check out Spirit of the Marathon. While I found it interesting and well done, my husband fell asleep a couple times. Guess it is one of those movies that mainly only runners appreciate! After watching it, I am even more pumped up about this weekend's run!!!! Bring it on!
