Scenes from the day before my first ultra marathon...

Posted May 24 2013 10:32pm
So what's there to really say the day before your first ultra marathon?

Other than the "I am's":

  • I'm incredibly excited
  • I'm kinda scared
  • I'm nervous
  • I'm curious

The "I hope's":
  • I hope I trained enough
  • I hope the weather holds out
  • I hope I packed the right stuff
  • I hope I survive
  • I hope I can walk the next day

And the inevitable:
  • I think tomorrow is going to be an amazing day

That pretty much sums it up.  I'm too excited to write much more of a post today so instead I'm going to give you this...
Sorry, still love playing with InstaQuote!
This day has been staring at me from my calendar for months and now here I am with my fridge stocked with lots of water, homemade-orade and chocolate milk for afterwards...

My two favorite pair of Mizuno Wave Riders are ready and waiting by the front door...

My clothes are laid out on the bed, minus jackets and things like that.  My outer layer, if any, is totally going to have to wait until I see what the weather is actually like tomorrow...

Fun swag at the expo...couldn't help but do a little shopping during my volunteer breaks!

My finish line bag complete with water, sandals, cold chocolate milk, a bag of chips and my new favourite chocolate covered toffee balls (thanks Trader Joe's) is all packed and ready to go with one of my crew members...

Not much more I can do now except eat dinner and relax for the evening.  It was a great day and tomorrow's going to be a pretty great day too.

Goodnight and thanks so much for all of the amazing well wishes and kind notes of encouragement and good luck on Twitter, Facebook etc.
