Wow ok, tomorrow is the half marathon. 8 weeks have really flown by. I wanted to take a moment and make a checklist for tomorrow. I will, of course, probably forget something. Then I will remember it either at 2 in the morning, or on the way to the race. Either way I’m going to be so excited about the race I won’t sleep.
Things I will need for the actual race:
Pants (it will be raining)
Long sleeve tech tee
Rain jacket (bonus it has tons of pockets)
Phone (for tunes)
Hair band for pony tail
Things I will need post race
Some sort of breakfast (I hate eating the crap they have for post race stuff, plus I’m slow so they often run out or the good $hit is gone)
Towel for car, and face
Change of clothes and shoes
Things I need to pick up for the crock pot corned beef and cabbage I will make before the run:
(can you guess I only have the corned beef)
This means I have to go grocery shopping on the way home.
I also made arrangements with The in-laws for Carlo to spend the night and be brought over to the house around noon. Hubs couldn’t get the day off, so there will be no “Tiffany cheering section”. It’s ok, I have to be understanding since he has gone to almost every race I have done. So I will drive by myself and race by myself. I figure I’m doing all of this for myself anyways. I had originally planned on racing it with a friend, but they bailed on me too.
With all that being said in still pretty excited! I mean, I get to run a half marathon tomorrow! Yippee!
Sometimes you just gotta run for yourself 🙂
Have you ever ran a race by yourself with no cheering section?
How did it go?
Do you see that I’m missing anything?
