Pre-race post

This week has been so busy! Well the last few weeks have been busy. With work, my son's baseball schedule and getting home late from either one of those two the only thing I want to do when I get home is read my book and and go to sleep. But in a weird way I love when things are so busy. With summer coming up and baseball ending at the beginning of June I don't know what I'll do with all my time! Well maybe i'll have more free time to run instead of running to my son's practices to make sure I fit in my runs :)

So tomorrow I'll be running the Lake Lowell Half Marathon! I had originally wanted to run the full but was changing my mind since it's such a small race. I actually got contacted by the race director earlier this week cause he had come across that post and offered to upgrade me to the full marathon for free. I thought that was really nice! I declined cause my mileage isn't up their enough to run a full marathon. The longest training run so far is 16 miles. In fact I pushed my first marathon for this year until Seattle RnR on June 23rd. Mostly because of these darn shin splints that are still bothering me during runs :(

Anyway I'm excited to run the half tomorrow! I got to meet Lisa and Kim today at dinner who are also running the half. They are both flew in today for this race and then are getting on a plane a few hours after the race tomorrow to fly to Oregon and run another half on Sunday!

I picked up their race packet as well as mine today which was took me all of about 2 minutes to get. They had sent out an email earlier saying the race shirts wouldn't be available till next week and our timing chips need to be picked at the race so all we really got was just the bib and a few coupons including one for $5 or $10 off their wine run in the fall. That race is actually on my radar so I may be more inclined to register for it.

My race bib and we also got some scentsy's in the shape of shoes

After dinner at the Olive Garden there were a few shops across the parking lot so I stopped in Ulta which is kind of like a Sephora if you haven't been to one. I was looking for a new perfume. I ended up getting Daisy by Marc Jacobs. It smells sooo good and I got two tote bags as a gift with purchase!

I finally decided on what to where. I had been debating on which skirt and socks to where but after trying them on I decided to go with this combo...

My goals for this race is just to enjoy the run and finish in around 2 hours.

I'm going to finish my updated my playlist for tomorrow then I'm off to bed!

If your racing this weekend have fun and good luck!


  1. Have a great race! We will be running at the same time for a little bit so I will mentally cheer you on :) I am going with the pink socks so we will both be colorful!

  2. That wine run looks like one I might just have to take a vacation day for and run! :) Good luck today!
