This is my last post before I run 13.1 miles for the second time ever!!!!!!! Eeeeeeeek!!!!!!
We headed over to Kim’s brothers house where his wife had the perfect pre-run carb fest for the runners!!!
The “Greek” salad was about as legit as it comes. She is Greek!
Enough of that green nonsense. GIVE ME THOSE CARBS!
Pure, un-adulterated carb festival IN MY MOUTH.
Sometimes I think a long run is just an excuse to eat like a maniac and feel justified about it.
Stuffed Shells, Greek Salad, Potato Salad, and a hunk-o-bread the size of Rhode Island.
Sugar was also required in the form of an amazing strawberry/banana/angel food cake Trifle.
Wipe up that drool. Thank you. IT WAS AMAAAAAAAAAAAZ-AH-EENG.
Spent some cuteness time with Kim’s nephew Ryan…
And then promptly sped home to attempt sleep. Wake up call is 4am, so we can get there by 5…and race at 6:00am!!!!!!!!!
Ok…..just gotta breath. I hate these pre-race nerves!!! What do you guys do to calm them? I swear that last 10 minutes standing there waiting to start is the worst. 10. minutes. of. Tyler’s. life.
Well, ready or not…it is time to do this thing. I am hoping for the best with the knee, and prepared to push through the pain and rock this bad boy OUT!
The OCD in me had to prepare my outfit…complete with my new FITNESS pack (ok…it is totally a glorified fanny pack) which I can carry my CAMERA in. If I am feeling froggy, there will be IN RACE pics! Score.
See you guys at the finish line. ;-)
