[140 days to go] Only 13 hours until the start of the half marathon! I am about to sit down to a pasta dinner with my family to do a group carbo-load… hopefully it will give The Man and I some extra energy for the hot hot heat expected tomorrow. I’m a little nervous about over-heating, especially with my previous experience with heat exhaustion, but my goal is finishing the 13.2 miles – not breaking any records. Here is THE PLAN for tonight and tomorrow:
7 pm: Pasta dinner! (om, nom, nom)
9 pm: Early to bed. Hopefully I will be able to fall asleep quickly and not be up feeling nervous
5:30 am: Early to rise! Eat a small breakfast of a banana and one small pancake (which The Man assures me he will be willing to make fresh in the morning – what a hunk)
6:o0 am: Apply sunscreen liberally & don super short shorts
6:30 am: Head over to the starting line, at the Seaport World Trade Center, and pick up number and race chip
8:00 am: Race time!
Here’s to the start of something good. Looking forward to updates after the race!
