And now we wait…..

One bad thing about running a race that starts at midnight is you have all day to prepare and then wait.  Unlike a 8AM race, where you prep the night before, wake up, have breakfast, get there before the race and go run.  I just picked up my shirt, my number and my timing chip and I have all my clothes laid out, and now I have about another 7 hours before the race starts.

It’s not going to be too terrible cold tonight, but I’ve been getting cold on my runs lately, so I have all my cold weather gear laid out.  My underarmour leggings, shorts, long sleeve tech tee, skull cap and gloves.  They gave us a nice shirt for the race, but I will wear my red tech shirt, it’s a little thicker.  Here is my stuff laid out.

I’m running this race tonight with two newly met fitness buddies: Kim, who I met on MyFitnessPal and actually talked her into running with me for her first race, and Jennifer who I met on DailyMile.  Can’t wait.  Should be an exciting way to ring in the New Year.

And now we wait….

  • About Me

    I am a recent graduate in Food Science (NC State, 2009) and I work for a major food manufacturing company. I love food, but I can no longer eat anything that crosses my path. About 24 months ago I begin a serious struggle to get my obesity under control and reduce my chances of developing Type II diabetes. Since September of '09 I have lost 50 pounds and I still have a long ways to go. I've started eating better and exercising more, including taking up running.
