I’m going to be in Fort Collins, CO by this time next week! And at that time I would be only about 12 hrs from running!!! Um, have I mentioned how excited
scared I am? Yeah…but it’s going to be AWESOME!!! I mean, look at tall the awesome bloggers/friends, also known as the DANGEROUS DOZEN, I’m running with:
- Amanda from Run to the Finish
- Bobbi from N Her Shoes
- Kristen from ChasRunner
- Shannon from Shannon’s Scene: Take Two
- Alesha (Bobbi’s good friend)
- Cynthia from Amber (Shannon’s cousin)
- Jennifer (not sure if she has a blog !)
- Jeri from JerBer Shares
- Moore (Alesha’s friend)
- Dionne (Moore’s friend and lives in CO)
- …and me!
I was designated as runner #1, so I’m starting the race! Yipes! But check out the details of my legs:
This is the one that I’m most scared about…no altitude trailing and very little hill running beforehand!
And last but not least:
Then I wait and cheer and WE’RE DONE! I’m super excited to finally get to see all the great ladies and gents taking part in this race…and I’m going to be spending lots of time w/ Bobbi since we’re driving out there and back together!
Anyhow, onto food! Today was a lazy day…I woke up totally not feeling a run…I wanted to go back to sleep, but when that light hits my eye when I open them, there is no going back to sleepy land. So I got up…and moped around. But I tried something new for breakfast! I picked up this soy yogurt the other day because it was on sale and I hadn’t tried one in years (since the last time I tried, it was HORRIBLE) and wanted to try it again.
The ingredients aren’t too bad, but I wasn’t too thrilled about the 19 grams of SUGAR. Um, that’s a little much.
I mixed up 1/2 the container w/ lots of kashi go lean crunch and some super sweet strawberries.
I went out and ran errands w/ Mom and to get some groceries and meds, then came back ready for lunch. I started off w/ a fruit salad including raspberries, blueberries and a white peach.
And had a Mr. Praegers burger on an Arnold’s Thin w/ spring salad and tomato…that burger was spicey! I don’t know what kind it was as it was purchased a while back, but it sure did have power too it (either that, or my tongue is week sauce, which I don’t doubt).
And then I had this, times three.
I spent a lot of the afternoon scrapbooking as I want to finish up most of the pictures I got printed before I leave next week. Then I walked to Meghann, then Brad for a bit and went for a short yet speedy run! I set off w/ a little bit of a job and then set off to run a two mile square block as fast as I could. Ok, not as fast as I could, but faster than normal. I finished that suck’a in 15.35! I haven’t done speed work in a LONG TIME so I was quite surprised at this! Makes me wonder what I could run a mile in (like the awesome mile that Meghann and Kelly ran today in 6.39!
Then I set out for din din! Mom and Dad were eat’n veggie burgers but since I had one for lunch I wanted a little something different. So I sautéed some black beans w/ lots of spices, bell pepper, onion and mushrooms and a side of 1/2 a pita (the other 1/2 was eaten w/ pb last night) and sided it with some honeydew. Perfect dinner.
And even though I had a few sweet early, I was craving chocolate, so I gave into it and had a tiny tiny glass of cookies and cream fro yo from the freezer…just enough to hit the spot, and small enough that I ate it so fast I didn’t get a picture!
Now I’m off to get more scrapbooking done and plan my LAST WEEKEND AT HOME. And I think I’m heading down to San Diego. How ironic.
