Race Day is THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW, so I'm now nervous! I've been mostly focusing on tomorrow and how much fun that'll be so I don't completely freak out about the actual race. A friend and I are driving up together around noon, and meeting the rest of our group at the hotel. After we check in and get settled, we'll walk to the expo to get our race packets and check out all the goodies. We'll have a carby pasta dinner downtown, and then go back to the room for some girl time before we attempt to sleep (ha!). I doubt I'll be sleeping much tomorrow night!
Yesterday, it hit me.
The butterflies in my gut. At this point, they're more like huge 'roided up movie butterflies! I'm ready for the race. I know I can do it. But there's still some fear in there. I'm always nervous before a race, no matter the distance, but this one... THIS race, I've trained. I've busted my butt. I've planned. And it's the longest distance I've ever run in a race. All the unknowns are turning me into a Nervous Nelly.
Wish me luck! Also, you can track my progress during the race at Runkeeper if you'd like to follow along. I'm sure it's pretty boring if you're not actually in the race, but my husband and kids love to watch the little icon on the map.
My next post will be a race recap. Holy shit.
