I'm mentally making a checklist (and checking it twice) of all the things I need to do before that day gets here!
*Marathon outfit has been tested and is approved. (Tank, running skirt and possibly running sleeves if it's not too warm)
*Need to get some more gels/chews
*Need to work on my play list (thanks for the suggestions on my other post!)
*Have been hydrating. Here's proof
|Hydrating at work|
|Dash wanted some of my green tea!|
We are making a spectator plan. I think it will just be Gene watching me run. (My son is going out of town this weekend with his grandma) We originally thought he could hang out at the RAM Restaurant till I ran by at the half way point cause it's right on the course but I doubt it will be open around 10 am and also not sure if there will be some detours on the course cause part of the greenbelt is still flooded. Packet pickup is this Friday where the finish line will be so I'll ask if they have an updated map.
