Beautiful sunny day, started running at 7am, sore neck and ITCHY..
Eats for the run: (First Dinner) Ravioli, shrimp, corn bread, brussel sprouts and Bud light. (Second Dinner) Tortilla chips w/ salsa, part of an empinada, shrimp quesidilla with beans and rice and a Corona. LOTS OF WATER!! Breakfast- Bagel, coffee, red bull, water.
The night before my (first ever) 20 mile run I went to celebrate with my friend Jessica who is getting married next weekend. I ate dinner before I left because I had no idea what to expect and we were not meeting up until 7:30PM. Once I got to the restaurant the Mexican food was beyond tempting and I ate a second dinner. Thank goodness for the calories I burn running.
I have been really focused on everything for comfort, and to be distraction free, on race day. I replaced my crappy headphones, bought a new shirt and am working on the right balance of water, gels, and other essentials. My pony tail has been a constant source of irritation, so I opted for my signature hairstyle from my basketball days.
