We got here yesterday afternoon and have been able to enjoy come DIFFERENT (hello, 39 degrees this morning! – friends coming from other states come prepared for a COLD race morning!) weather and great eats that we can only get up here and not at home!
To back up a sec, I had to share the awesomeness that happened when I left work to start our racecation on Tuesday…
My awesome team at work not only decorated my desk, but freaked me out (in a great way!) when they all held race signs they’d made for me as I left for the week to wish me luck! Ah! What an inspiring way to leave and have them make me want to make them PROUD!
I know I’ve taken some advise from friends like Pavement Runner to help me prepare and get ready for the Marathon with a hefty Playlist! I wanted to be sure to have at least 5 hours of music to keep me going – steadily getting faster (to not go out too quickly) and to keep me happy and smiling should I not have the fire of spectators in my mist.
