saturday is the day.
half marathon numero tres.
numero uno: walk/run, rolling in at 2:20, happy abby at the finish line.
numero dos: full run, no stops, 2:07 finish, delirious, loopy abby in the medical tent for an hour post-race, serious salt-deficiency discovered.
so where does that leave me this year? prepared. and pumped.
here’s my survival kit:
#1: a good hat is essential for my short-hair. i’ll be sporting pigtails under this puppy. plus, it’ll probably be raining, so this will keep that rat hair at bay.
#2: salt. apparently when you sweat out all your salt your body freaks out. or at least mine does. so i’ll be carrying these little guys to keep replenished, and out of the medi-tent.
#3: something bright. it’s amazing how many people run the country music half and marathon. it’s insane, and i get lost in the crowd. i wouldn’t want my 3 fans to miss me as i run by, so i’ll be wearing this (but not quite filling it out as well):
#4: something to chew on: 13.1 miles takes a little while. i get bored and need a boost, and something to snack on. these little guys are pretty tasty – like a gummy bear with a caffeine kick. kels and i will chompin’ on these in pomegranate and bluberry!
i’ll be ready. here’s to hoping this clears up
and we have a beautiful day to run.
third times a charm, right?
