I have a post coming this weekend about clothing and shoes and the secret dressing habits that I employ to make myself look .00002 pounds lighter. That will come, but tonight I am just feeling kind of excited and nervous about the race tomorrow. Mike gets to run his first half marathon, I am going for a PR that I think will actually happen this time, and it will be one of those small races that seem so personal and where you get to meet lots of fun people. (but also where there are mostly hardcore runners and it is entirely possible for me to finish last...which would suck) We will also get to have a post-race lunch with one of Mike's college buddies who lives down there. Apparently we will be eating something called the Slopper, a green chili-smothered burger that you can only get in Pueblo. Bring it on! I love earning a burger and a beer. (I only allow burgers on race days, so you can bet I get the most mileage I can out of it) It's going to be a great day. But we have to get up at 4:30AM, so I am going to keep it short and sweet tonight and get some good sleep after I pre-set the coffee machine and make our PBJ's for pre-race. Excited to share this with Mike tomorrow. I think he is going to be hooked just like I am. :) Goodnight, world! And good luck to everyone hitting the strip in Vegas this weekend!
