Whew. They made me drive all the way into Virginia to get it, but I have my bib for the Marine Corps 17.75K. I’m kinda nervous; my runs have not been great lately, and the course is described as having “rolling hills.” Goody. But this is my only way into the Marine Corps Marathon if I want to do that (I do want to do that, right? Right??? I have to decide by April 14! Tell me if I want to do it!).
The magnificent Nicole gifted me some KT Tape, so I’m gonna slap some of that on my touchy knee tomorrow, plus I’m making myself some whole-grain pasta for lunch. Preparedness!
Less preparedness: I’m not sure what to eat for dinner or breakfast before the race – I’m experiencing too-much-research paralysis, if you know what I mean. I was thinking a fruit + coconut water smoothie and a couple slices of buttered toast for the night before, and then for pre-race…? What are your go-to meals leading up to a run?
Anyway, if you happen to be awake at 5AM, think of me.
