Nikki's RnRLV To-Do List
Print out race confirmation and paperwork
Confirm airplane seat selection for grouchy husband who only likes aisle seats
Plan race costume
Sew and bedazzle pieces for costume
Test said race costume on at least one short run

Make meticulous packing list
Confirm dinner reservations (Gordon Ramsay I love you!)

Confirm plans to meet up with friends in Las Vegas
Figure out how to taper this week while still completing as much of my Goofy training as possible
Check/watch weather forecast for race day
Sew new cushion covers for family room (obviously this has nothing to do with the race but last time my in-laws visited I said I was going to make these and now they're coming back again and I'm not done! Ha ha)
