So yeah, this was pretty much me all day on Thursday - I am so excited and nervous and just on this side of freaking out about the GLOW run tonight! I've been checking the weather - supposed to rain this morning, stop around 1pm, and then the temps will drop and the wind will kick up - really? For my first ever 5K? I suppose it could be snowing, but still! I have my list of gear for the run - want to see it? Of course you do! Here goes:
- Nike+ Sportsband, so I can keep track of my time
- Visor (only if it's raining, to keep most of the drops off of my glasses)
- Black long-sleeved wicking shirt
- Purple workout shirt (our workout group will be all matchy-matchy!)
- Long workout pants or capris - not sure which I'll wear; depends on how cold it really is
- Black vest (again with the cold)
- Gloves (sense a theme here?)
- Ageless lime green socks*
- Water bottle
*I have been issued a sock challenge by Tracy Harris of Thorlo - seriously, go read her comment in my last post! So be sure to look for my review of the hopefully Ageless Experia socks (yes, I have renamed them...and you're welcome, Thorlo) next week. Y'all know me - I will tell it like it is - but I'm hoping that I do like them as they are so cute and athletic-looking!
********************In other news, I actually ended up working out on Wednesday - I was able to do a make up session with a group at 5:30 pm. More negatives! This time with our arms - I was doing push ups (from the knees, thankfully) and Brad was pushing between my shoulder blades as I was on the downward movement! A couple of times I nearly bit the dust and smashed my face onto the floor, but I was able to catch myself. That was CRAZY! I also got the giggles...I guess the absurdity of what I was doing cracked me up! Anyway, I'm glad I got that workout in.
********************And my last bit of excitement: Kelly from Happy Texans has made her hotel reservations and registered for the Armadillo Dash - she will be running the 5K with us on March 7, otherwise known as Blogger Run Day!!! Fun times - can't wait to meet her and her sweet husband, Chuck.
*******************This is going to be a long day, waiting for 9pm to get here. Cross your fingers for me that I don't hyperventilate before then!
