I signed up for this race a few months ago and decided yesterday morning that I really wanted to do it:) The half I am focusing on is in 2 weeks so I’m using this morning as a 13.1 mile long run with a group of friends and we are going to have a blast. I’ve done this marathon twice and this half-marathon twice too and I just couldn’t imagine not being there again today! Brooke is going to do the kid’s race too and she feels like a big deal with her race bib now. PS this race’s (Utah Valley) theme is PAIN YOU ENJOY… love it.
Started day with no run and a trip for breakfast instead.
Brooke loves this place for the whipped cream.
Stopped at my parents’ house for a minute.
Brooke’s favorite trip to Costco ever= Beauty and the Beast. I picked up sweet potatoes, chicken and avocados (among other things) to keep my lunch streak alive.
Took a movie break.
Took off to the expo and I was very excited to see BROOKS there!
Gotta go through it all.
I was excited to get a wind jacket (with thumbholes) instead of a race t-shirt!
Reading + apples +almond butter + peanut butter. (dinner was simple noodles and chicken at home)
We are organized.
It is supposed to be windy and hot today so my race in two weekends will feel like a million bucks when it is cool and not windy;)
This alarm is going to hurt…
What is your weekend running looking like? Any races? Long runs?
What’s the earliest you have waken up for a race or long run?
What are you looking forward to today?
