happy friday! its beautiful out today. absolutely perfect. the good thing about living in the midwest is that while we have fewer sunny and warm days, we definitely enjoy them. in fact, on a nice day, i feel obligated to spend as much time as possible outdoors. i have already managed to have a meeting outside, take a walk to the bank, and chit chat outside. im sure i will figure out more ways to be outside be the day is through.
no big plans for me tonight, just grocery shopping and eating carbs and drinking water and going to bed early in preparation for tomorrow. i have my 20 miler all planned out...most of it will be on the lake, with a detour to nicole's house to pick her up. because she is my awesome running friend she is running the last 8 miles with me. we will end up at millenium park, which leaves me in close proximity to jamba juice, hot dog vendors, and a bus i can catch to head home.
the weather should be perfect, ive got gu and gatorade for my fuel belt, ill work on a killer playlist tonight, nicole will help carry me through the last 8 miles, the lakefront path will be filled with people to watch....
what else? am i missing anything?
today i asked my friend at work whose run a few marathons for last minute advice. she gave me two pointers.
1. dont stop
2. dont drink tonight
ok, i think i got that. no stopping when im tired cause it will make it even harder to keep going, and no way am i drinking tonight at all.
anyone have any other pieces of advice to get through this 20 miler?
in music news..maria taylor's new song "cartoons and forever plans" is awesome. listen up.
