‘Tis the night before the Lake Sammamish Half-Marathon and I’m doing my normal… you know, freaking out. Actually, I’ve been doing that since I got the race instructions in my email on Wednesday. I tend to hit panic mode when that email comes.
It’s supposed to be 50 degrees with a 50% chance of rain… neat-o. The weather is notorious for raining on the day of the Lake Sammamish race, so this is not a surprise to me. Visors work to keep both the sun AND the rain out of the eyes. I’ll leave off the make-up though… don’t want any Tammy Faye Bakker mishaps!
Watch is charging, race gear is ready, alarm set for 4 a.m. Water has gone down nicely tonight, so no worries there. Pre-race dinner was chicken and pasta with olives and artichoke hearts, a light Greek dressing, so doing well there, too. No alcohol… I’m saving that for Saturday night celebrations with Jamesy. Don’t need any issues on the course from alcohol!
Okay then, I think this girl is all set! The next time I see you, I’ll be slightly hungover and one bling richer!
Oh, yeah, the Twitter thing… I get my feed on my watch while I’m running. If you’re around tomorrow morning (7:30 a.m. Pacific), I would love to hear from you, @neveradullbling! You know, stuff like, “Get that arse moving!” Or “Don’t let that walker pass you!” Or even, “Chimichanga!” (which is waiting for me at the finish line, :D)…
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
