It’s race week!
I loved Rock N Roll San Diego and I am looking forward to returning to enjoy everything that I loved last year. Throw in the new upgraded aid stations and miles markers and more music along the course and I am stoked. Oh- did I mention that Des Linden is pacing the 2:00 hour half and Meb Keflezighi is pacing the 1:30 half group?
Now, I am notoriously bad at spotting celebrities- though I do have a pic of Kara Goucher hauling past me at one race- so I am not sure how likely it is that I will run into or see either of them but I am going to keep my eyes peeled.
And aid stations- I read that there are 8 aid stations for the half. 8! My last marathon had 11- so that’s 8 for only half the miles! If there was ever a time to practice running without my own water this would be it but I think I would be too paranoid to do that so I just need to make sure that I don’t drink too much liquid.
But the best part??? Friends!!!!!! Kate and Mai! I haven’t seen them since Las Vegas so this is like a reunion- woo hoo!!!! Kate’s coming all the way from Texas!! Makes my 6 hour drive seem piddly! I’m so excited!!!!!
Now- the less exciting part. I’m having some issues in the hip/glute area so I’m not quite sure well this is going to go. I’m actually less concerned about the miles than the 6+ hour drive to get to San Diego- sitting has become distinctly uncomfortable.😒 So with that being said, I have zero goals for this race. Well unless you count have fun and finish. I would take finish off but we all know if I start, I’m finishing even if I have to walk it in. I hope it doesn’t come to that but I am prepared for it if it does. There could be lots of pictures in my recap if that happens.
Is it time to leave yet????
