My race is tomorrow and I was explaining to my kids what a race is and how it works. My oldest asked me if I was going to win. I told him no, that there are people faster than me. He said just run faster. Ahh, to be 5 and think life is that easy.
I spent about 10 minutes tonight pinning my bib on my shirt. First I pinned it on, and then I remembered I tuck my shirt in when I run. I then had to put on my shirt and shorts to find the right spot for the bib. Everything fits comfortably.
I just packed my bag. I made sure to have some deodorant, a change of clothes and extra water in there for when I finish the race. I am also taking 2 pieces of my homemade banana bread. One to eat before and one to eat afterwards.
My day today was not ideal. I left the house at 6:00am and returned home 8:30pm. For dinner, we went out for our work outing. I had some baked salmon, French fries and some bread.
I checked the bus schedule and I am all set for tomorrow.
My dad called to tell me good luck and remember to have fun.
