Now that the major run is over… well the training run that is. A bunch of questions appear. I don’t know about you all, but the major question I keep asking myself is….
1. What am I going to wear for the marathon????
Isn’t this one of the main parts of marathon training? Finding a cute, fun outfit to run around in for 5 hours? I think I have this part nailed down… but it’s always open for modifications.
I plan to “sparkle” during the race so I ordered my very first Team Sparkle skirt.
and of course I couldn’t resist the rainbow race legs.
It is yet to be determined if the rainbow race legs will make an appearance in San Antonio or not…. depends on the weather conditions.
I think I’ll be wearing a white UnderArmour top and black UnderArmour compressions shorts to round out the outfit.
Now really, any question after this one is not very material in nature…
2. Do I try for a particular finish time?
My times have been all over the place lately. I’ve been knocking out some good runs in the 11ish/mile pace.
I actually do have a time in mind but I don’t feel like sharing… if you want to guess I might confirm your guesses… or not.
3. When do I start the wine taper?
Sadly, I’m thinking it’s gotta start soon. Guess I better start polishing off those two bottles I got the other day.
Watch out co-workers..
4. What am I going to eat the night before?
This actually isn’t that big of a deal to me. I know some people have issues with food and have to be careful. I’ve been pretty lucky and my tummy is tolerant of nearly everything I slam into it.
I’m pretty sure I’ll be hitting up with some family that night so it’ll be something good and bland… cause that’s how my family rolls.
5. When do I book my room?
Ha! Scared ya! I booked my room a long long long long time ago. We are all set for staying. Unfortunately, it’s not a very long trip… we drive to San Antonio Saturday and immediately leave after the race.
Sorry family, I will smell wonky after the race. Get ready for the 3 hour car ride home.
And no Addison, you CANNOT have Mommy’s protein bar… get your own. (I will pack extras this time… she ate mine after my Dallas half…)
6. Should I be having tapering crazies by now?
I’m not. I’m totally fine. Less running is fun.
7. Who’s gonna try to run up behind me and freak me out?
Certainly not Rachael.
8. How far is a marathon again?
26.2 miles? Oh geez… what was I getting into?
At least the elevation isn’t bad.
9. Am I missing something?
I always forget something. I know.. I need to order my iFitness belt. Thanks for reminding me.
That’s totally me in the picture.
10. Seriously, am I forgetting anything??
