Ready as I'm gonna be

I decided to make my own fuel for tomorrow's race.
All food I've had before long runs
so no stomach worries.

Step 2. I cut a slit halfway through the seal
for easy opening

Carb loaded with Shrimp Mei Fun
Continued hydrating
(Yes, that is TEA in there!)
Checked the weather for race time
Dressed the nightstand appropriately
I love this race shirt!
I'm a little nervous about this race. I'm flying solo, since Superman is in Chicago and Energizer Bunny is having a crazy weekend before heading to Florida Tuesday. The solo part is not so bad, except my last 2 long runs have been horrible. Solo means I don't have anyone to push me, either by running with me or by waiting for me at the finish. I'm hoping hydration and the stretching I'll do before heading to bed will ward off the nastiness of those last 2 runs. The 11-miler prior to them was hands down the best long run I've ever done. I suppose it would be too much to ask for tomorrow to mirror that run...
