I got some goodies yesterday for Sunday’s race:
Item #1: New race outfit
Matching hat, jogging bra and shorts – all pink pink PINK!!!!! I asked HB to take pics of me in action, and with this lovely outfit, he can’t miss me even if he tried (in short of wearing a siren on my head). And besides, who says you can’t look cute in a race, huh?
Item #2: New waist pack
My old fanny pack was bulky, uncomfortable and frankly, a pain in the fanny (pun intended). Massively annoying. This is a nice meshed pack that I can shove my necessaries (not a word) i.e. phone, inhaler, iPod, ID, etc. minus hinderance. Speaking of carrying stuff, I ordered a RoadID a bit ago, I’m hoping that will arrive before Sunday.
Item #3: SuperFeet
I took the advice of a very experienced runner to get a pair of SuperFeet. You can never be too careful, and I hear knees are important 😉
Item #4: Watch
Actually I’m getting a cheap one from Target today. To the advice of Bob1623, I will want to calculate my net time. If I happen to find a hot pink one, that will be beyond purrrfection!
Item #5: Quench Gum
Anyone tried this stuff before? My inhaler gives me cotton mouth; I’m hoping this can help allieviate.
Item #5: New Calendar
Not pertinent to the race, but certainly helpful. It’s got tons of good info for a newb like me.
Is it Sunday already???
