Tomorrow is my first race since I have been "back in the game". I'm nervous as all get out ( whatever that means) and anxiously awaiting the race start of 8:15am.
I already went and picked up my race packet. Having that means I will get a little extra sleep in the morning.
I have showered ( surprising, I know!). And set all of my clothes out. I even tried on my "outfit" and "jogged" up and down the hall to make sure it felt good.
It is important, you know.
That it feels good and that you can't see panty lines. ( I seem to have a slight obsession with that)
I ate my pre-race meal.
Buckwheat noodles with bean sprouts, green onions and a drop of sesame oil. And veggie sushi ( that got messed up in the container) and edamame.
( Kev ate the same but he also had grilled dumplings and soy sauce)
And Kev is currently downloading a special play list to my Ipod for me to run to. Songs with a good beat. Like Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas, Jay Z. And songs that just make me so happy. Like Guns N Roses, Bon Jovi, and Journey.
Kev timed the songs to finish when I should finish. It will help me keep track. And if I get to Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me A River"... then I know I have taken too long. And then I will be crying a river for real.
Except for I'm running this race for me. I'm challenging myself. So who really cares how long it takes me or if I stop every once in a while to do some dance moves.
It is all in fun. And for health.
And for the awesome t-shirt that I received.
You gotta love a new t-shirt.
And with that... I am off to bed. My alarm will be going off before I know it.
