Today my mind is an endless reel of questions and lists. Should I pack a drop bag? I think so, since the weather is so squirrely. Why is it only going to be a high of 34 degrees on race day? At least it isn't supposed to rain. Ok, I'll pack a drop bag, then at least I have extra clothes if I need them. What should I bring for after the race? I should get some beer for after the race. I wonder if they have any good gluten free beer at the liquor store. I think I'll make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I had better make bread. Why did I have a sore throat this morning? I hope it's just the weather. I hope my right leg doesn't bother me on race day. I'd better use the foam roller and stretch again later. What should I wear? Long sleeves. No. Short sleeves and a long sleeve. No. Long sleeves and a vest. Ok, yeah, that will work. You get the idea. It doesn't stop! And I still have three days until race day! It's going to be a long week!
Stuff, from left to right: clothes for after, clothes for drop bag, hydration pack and food, clothes to wear and Luna the cat (he's not coming on race day though.)
Oh yeah, and I ran today. It wasn't a great run, but it was fine. The weather is cool, wet and windy. A wonderful first day of Spring. HA! I think it was good for me to get moving, but my mind wasn't in the run. My mind was on Saturday.
