Just like that, it’s race weekend.
Wow, time flies when you’ve been sick. 😛 I have managed to get in a run but as you may know my training has been conspicuously absent these past 2 weeks. Oops.
So, with that being said, what am I thinking? I have run races on uglier month’s than these (looking at you Carlsbad). I realize this will not be “raced”. Likely, this will be barely run. Run/walk intervals will be used and if that doesn’t work, walking it is. I know part of the course takes runners on the Pomona raceway and I am looking forward to that.
And all the festive-ness! I get the feeling that everyone is going to be wearing their holiday finest in running wear and I can’t wait to check it out. I actually owned nothing festive so I took myself to Wal-Mart to remedy that situation. I feel like I need more though, I didn’t get very much. I still have time to look for more. Hmmm.
This is my last race of the year and I just want to have fun. And stay warm. The 8AM start time will help but I am getting there early for packet pickup. #allthelayers
