We made it to Tucson and it was love at first sight. Perfect weather, gorgeous scenery and we are loving our hotel.
Rewind to the morning—> we stayed at my brother’s house and Brooke got in a few races of her own with the cousins.
I did this until about 11 a.m. I doubt I walked more than 1,000 steps yesterday and my legs will thank me for that today!
We left my brother’s house and my mom, Brooke and I started the 2 hour drive to Tucson. Lunch came first and we went to Kneaders (aka the place I go to in Utah all of the time). The red stuff is cranberry sauce and I put avocado in there too. Sounds crazy but tastes delicious (just me defending my weird combinations again).
Brooke scored an owl cookie.
We went straight to the hotel first, picked up my bib and then hit the road again. We drove the entire course. Leading up to this point I was feeling every nervous feeling possible but once we saw the course and how beautiful it was… I was beyond excited. Hardest sections of the course —> miles 2-4, 10-13, 22ish and on… bring on the pain. I’m ready for you.
Brooke’s favorite thing to do at a hotel.
And for dinner we stopped at Whole Foods and brought back food. I stuck with rice, potatoes and grilled chicken.
The alarm (along with two other alarm clocks) is set and ready to go.
Sounds like a plan:
Hey, thanks for all of your sweet comments along the way. It has been a long training cycle and like usual, you guys have been the greatest and when I get tired and want to quit… I’ll be thinking about you all and keep on going!
I can do hard things.
