I warmed up with a little cat dancing.
Then, took off for 3 miles. I kept the pace up, but not on purpose – I think it’s jitters that kept me going! I always say I can’t do tempo or speed runs because I don’t tell my body how fast to go – it tells me. So I’m not positive what to expect on race day. I know I’ll try.
I’m in a rush because I have my monthly meeting with my boss this morning so I chugged the last of the OJ from the carton. I went through this juice fast, but I was sick so I had to All the cool weird people drink their calories this week.
Every race I always have anxiety I’m forgetting something so I finally put together a race day check list. Here it is for you to use too (let me know if I forgot anything!).
Race Day Checklist
Garmin (and charger)
Gels or Chews
Bib and pins
Fuel belt or carry
Throw away shirt/old space blanket
Change of clothes
Flip flops or boots
Gatorade and Snacks in car (a piece of cake perhaps)
