pre-race nonsense


My stupid body was awake at 4am this morning.. Hello body, it’s Saturday – in all fairness, I normally get up at 5am on Saturday to get my long run in with the group. This morning, I got to sleep in until 7. I just couldn’t take tossing & turning anymore so I got up and put some coffee on & made Chris & me some scrambled eggs. I’ve been on a scrambled egg kick lately – they seem to keep my fuller longer than oatmeal. I don’t know if that really makes sense, but I swear it’s the truth.

My Mom showed up at my house around 10:15ish so we could ride down to St. Pete together.


Mom should have taken the picture faster

concentrating really hard.

We made it to downtown St. Pete around 12 where I proceeded to almost kill a few pedestrians and several people in cars. I seriously don’t do one-way streets, or downtown big cities. I’m a small town girl for sure, and it shows when I get into big cities. I freak.

I have no pictures of the expo. When you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all. They did have a big magazine cover that you could stand in front of to take your picture, but that is on my Mom’s phone & I’m to lazy to transfer it to my computer. deal with it.

Nothing very exciting going on around here right now. We went to Publix after we checked into our hotel. We needed some snacky stuff & breakfast for the morning.

Oh, my Mom learned the pleasures of foam rolling. She had a blast on that thing.


She’s really going to be mad when she sees this on the blog. BAHAHA

The funny thing, is that she is sitting behind me while I type this.


reading blogs & hydrating – it’s hard work, but someone’s gotta do it.


Let me tell you how relieved I was when I saw that my number is 1336. Phew. That means I’m in corral #1. I knew there was a super slim chance that I’d be in another corral, but you just never know. I breathed a huge sigh of relief.

Okay, that’s enough nonsense. We are pretty much doing nothing until about 6:30ish – then we are going to carabbas for some pizzzzza & pasta!

Next time you hear from me I’ll either be crying mad tears, or happy tears. For your sake, and my Mom’s, let’s hope they are happy tears!
