Getting Hyped for Sunday
Thursday, May 01, 2008
OK, my race is Sunday. I can hardly sit still right now. It's kind of wierd to take two days off in a row - Thursday and Friday. I'm even taking Friday off from work (because I have to get my truck fixed - it's leaking oil). My morning plan (really just a plan to kill the time I would spend at work) - take the truck to the shop and run home (walking distance), take son to Speech Therapy, check my bank account, clean a little and grocery shop a little (because I'm anticipating being unable to move on Sunday when I usually do those things), then go to the Expo and get my bib and goodie bag. Maybe shop a little for some summer running gear, now that I have a brand that I like. I am thinking about heading down to "Spirit of the Marathon" on Fountain Square Friday night, but I would rather watch it at home. I will definitely buy that movie.
I'm also thinking about planting some flowers. My husband is giving me a huge birthday party in two weeks, and I need my yard to look good, so I'm doing little every week.
Saturday - My son has T ball in the morning, and I need to do a two mile warmup. Hopefully the car will be finished and I will go get it. My friend Anita is running the flying pig 5K, it's her first, so maybe I'll go down. If I get there in time, I want to enter my son in the kids race (he's 4, so it's like 50 yards). I planned to enter him earlier, but I didn't know the time schedule for T ball. After that, over to my mom's to drop John off, watch the derby and head for home to chill in the peace and quiet before the race!
Sunday - my husband is in the medical tent as head of the triage area (he's an RN), so we have a PARKING PASS CLOSE TO THE FINISH LINE!!!!! We're going down at 5:45 and he's going to watch the start and then head over to his area where he's working. I'll see him at the finish!
