2 More Days!

If taper madness involves the following list, then I certainly have it! :)

- checking weather.com at least five times a day
- washing my hands ALL the time because I don’t want to get sick
- deciding to use the elevator instead of the stairs out of fear of twisting my ankle, but then thinking, What if the elevator stops and I get stuck in here for days? I better take the stairs after all! :)
- race day dreams
- making lists for everything, including what I will need on race morning and what my sister needs to put in the "supply" bag for mile 20 (after reading Jack’s post--definitely eye drops in case my contacts "fold over", along with gatorade, pretzels, gummy bears, extra socks, nail clippers, band-aids, an extra hair elastic, scissors (in case I want to cut off the pace band) and my walkman. Did I forget anything?
- questioning myself~Did I train enough? Why didn’t I do any speed work this summer? What if I don’t find my running grove on race day?
- eating way too many carbs.

I could not be more excited! This is it. Just two more days!!

Best of luck to the other racers on Saturday Dianna, Michelle, Susan, Sarah and David on Sunday.

Michael said...

Good luck!!

Don't worry too much, as long as you got your bib, your shoes and you got some clothes, you'll do fine. Most of the stuff you carry with you, you will not need anyway.

You trained good, so go for it! You will do great!
