High Five Friday

First Bloggy meet-ups done. Since I have not uploaded any pictures yet, Amanda has a bunch on her camera, I will wait to share the details. But I will tell you Amanda is adorable and such fun! And Marlene is a gem, she brought a belated gift for me and a present for our whole family. So nice! We had a FULL day and I am ZONKERED...

The expo was great and due to some airplane issues I will be going again today... probably between the 1:00-3:00 timeframe. If you see me please say Hi!! I really love it when people introduce themselves.. Today I bought a Running skirt, who knows what I will get tomorrow?? I really love the Brooks race gear!!

BLOGGY CARBO tonight!!! SOOO Excited. I will be testing my video and camera skills.. Marathon #4, I can hardly believe it. This time last year I was a ball of nerves preparing for my FIRST Marathon. Now I am relaxed and excited to run a race for FUN, with Friends and for a GREAT Cause!! A Special Shout out to Jill HERE, my friend and local bloggy who will be running Seattle Rock N Roll as her FIRST Marathon. She is READY and is going to be smiling at the finish.

  • High Five Advice:
Marathon for the Cure sent me some great tips I thought I would pass on...
Last minute packing tips:
- Body Glide for chafing
- Sun screen / chap stick
- Extra socks (in the event it’s raining to bring to the start)
- Throw-away shirt/trash bag (to wear if it’s cold/raining before the race starts)
- Throw-away gloves/hat (to wear if it’s cold – you can throw them to the side if you get too warm)
- Energy gels/bars/pills, etc.
- Hydration bottle (if you run with a water bottle or Fuel Belt, etc.)
- Wear clothes race day you’ve trained in! It’s not the day to try out new shoes/clothing – you want to stick with what’s safe and predictable.
- Same goes for dinner the night before
– nothing new
– not the time to try out a new spicy dish.
- Visor (if it’s warmer out) or a hat (if its cooler out) to block the sun and/or rain
