Eve of Race

... Less than 12 hours before I start running the race.

I got in safe and sound after sitting in traffic for a little while. I went straight to pick up my race packet. It was seamless and easy. Then, I head to the hotel to check in and got my overnight bag out.  Then I decided to drive to the where the race is supposed to start tomorrow so I won't raise my blood pressure tomorrow morning. I also planned to drive the race route so there will be no surprise. I don't like surprises. But apparently, today, I don't read maps very well and got lost a few times. I gave up. I was tired. I was hungry. I just wanna quit driving.

I grabbed half of a panini sandwich and a cup of chicken tortilla soup from McAllister's Deli to-go so I can eat in the comfort of my hotel room while I watch "Say Yes to the Dress." Then, I got my stuff ready for tomorrow.
 Yeah ... I brought my own peanut butter and jelly and bread for tomorrow.

 Shoes with timing chip, Garmin, orange Gu Chomps, a packet of Gu gel in the pocket of one bottom, my top with race bib. I think I am ready.
