It’s race weekend!!!
Dang that one snuck up on me fast! Well, truthfully, June snuck up on me. Where did it come from? 😛
My first Rock n Roll race is this weekend!!!! I’m not counting last year’s DNS. 😕 Dude, is this thing as big as I think it’s going to be? I mean I’ve run Surf City and San Francisco but I have a feeling this is about to make those seem like small potatoes. For example- I know there are at least 32 corrals. 32?! Holy crap! I’m somewhere in the middle there but that’s a lot of people in front of me and a lot of people behind me.
I am looking forward to this weekend. This should be my biggest expo (Rock n Roll – you better live up to this!!) and I am looking forward to meeting some blogging and IG friends in real life. Yay!!!
Then there’s the city itself. I have family there but I haven’t been since I was like 7 or something so I remember nothing. I’ve heard great things so I can’t wait to see it with adult eyes. Expensive parking aside, grrr. My hotel is pretty close to the finish line for the finish line festival ( and the bay!). I think. I’ve been known to mess up hotels before. Funny, stressful moment- I actually changed hotels a few weeks ago and realized on Thursday that I had never canceled the original booking. Oh crap!
I am torn on what shoes to run in. I’ve been running in Adidas UltraBoost X but the farthest I’ve run in them is 8 miles. They are also slightly too big. But then my Brooks aggravate my calves for the first 3-4 miles and I just hope they loosen up. Hmmm, there’s a lot of questions there.
I may also be taking a trolley to the start. Holy crap, first time in pubic transportation. Well, unless Uber counts. But I’m still on the fence about that, mostly because I haven’t figured out how it works, haha.
Do you think I can figure it out?
