Raquelita from Historiada on the Run asked what is your pre race ritual?
The night before I make sure my Garmin and Ipod are fully charged, and put them in a bag with my racing flats, extra socks, bib, gels, and purse. I lay out the clothes I am going to wear and go to bed. In the morning I have a cup of coffee and drink lots of water. I eat oatmeal with chia seeds, pecans, cinnamon, and a little brown sugar. Get dressed, use the loo and head out. I always stop at a certain gas station to pee and buy a granola bar to eat. Being nervous makes me hungry? Get to the race, park and pin on my bib number. Use the porta potty, warm up, turn on garmin, get playlist ready, use the porta potty. Okay okay being nervous makes me pee a lot too.
She also asked what my favorite racing distance is? I love the 5k. I was a sprinter in high school and this is the closest to a sprint I do now days, but I am learning to love the half marathon distance almost as much. There is so much more time for strategy and passing people. Also a much bigger feeling of accomplishment when I am done.
Yesterday I finally got my internet back. I went nearly five whole days without it. It is amazing how much I missed it! I missed blogging, checking the weather, looking up recipes, and googling the random questions I might have. My kids missed playing Curious George games.
What do you miss most about the internet when you are forced to do without? It did save me from buying another Lululemon running skirt though. I don't need it I just really want it. Sigh
