Pre 5k Nerves!

In approximately 9.5 hours, I will be at the starting line of the Rock N’ Run 5k!

YIKES!

It’s been too long since I’ve raced! The last race (other than biking in the tri-relay) was in January for a 5k that I did HORRIBLE at! I am so nervous, because I really have nothing recent to base my time on! I’ve been training hard, so I think I’m ready. 😀

Usually, I race alone, or with BFF Debbie, so I’ve never been that competitive. This race is different, because Caitlin, Meghann, Kelly, BFF Debbie, Debbie’s friend Joanna will all be racing! I’m so excited to see how everyone does! A little friendly competition is pretty motivating, though!

I’ll wait for you girls at the finish line 😉

JasoNerd is racing tomorrow, too, so I can’t wait to see how he does!

For dinner, we made a quick pre-race favorite: spaghetti!

I made a big batch of spaghetti and topped mine with some steamed broccoli and zucchini. YUM!

Nothing fancy, but I like to have stuff that’s easy on my stomach. No toilet hugging for me, thank you!

I didn’t have real snacks today, but I definitely grazed on more Pretzels and PB, a couple mini-muffins, and some grapes.

I have my clothes and shoes laid out…

… and my Garmin’s charging!

Now I just have to remember:

  • set my alarm for 5:00 AM
  • race bib and pins
  • directions
  • wallet and phone
  • camera
  • ipod
  • Garmin
  • breakfast
  • body glide
  • sweat towel for the car ride home
  • to do my best!

So excited for tomorrow! My goal is sub 25:00, but I’m just going to give it my all!

Good Luck to everyone who is racing!! Let’s Rock N’ Run!
