The Half Marathon is Here! Just a Few Hours Away . . .
Posted Oct 18 2008 2:34pm
I rose early, at 5, when the baby cried for her bottle. That’s not bad, though, as I was in bed last night by 9:30, and asleep within minutes. My husband took care of the baby last night when she woke. I’m guessing she had a bottle after that, since the one I made and set on the counter is gone. I was so tired I didn’t hear her, and I slept the night through! That has happened only two or three times in the past ten months, what a blessing it happened last night!
I have my gear all laid out. We’ll wake the kids and whisk them into the car before they know what is happening, and then the family will attend a pancake breakfast put on by the Y while I run. The race is in Long Beach, close to the water, the Queen Mary, the aquarium, and numerous other things, so they will have plenty to look at and do while I race.
Apparently there are many bands set up along the course, which will be fun!
Well, should go get my gear on and get ready! I purchased a great set of running clothes at the expo yesterday when I picked up my packet. I got a non wicking red shirt for $10, shorts for $20 and a hat for $15. And of course lots of goodies in the goody bag!
I’ll report back, with a photo, when the half is over! Until then, keep running!
