Ready for a ‘Short Run’

Filed under: running,travel,weekends — by heatherdc @ 11:43 pm

My bags aren’t packed, and I’m not ready to go. But I am ready to run!

As of tonight, I am finishing up the laundry and packing the over-night bag. No biggie. I’m used to the whole ‘quick-pack’ routine. After making a last minute visit to the website, I realized I have to print out a Registration form (yes, I have already registered. I’m not that bad) to bring with me at the Packet Pick-up. Ehh, good thing I checked on that! A last minute trip to Target to see if they have any cute running tops to treat myself to is also on the to-do list. Every occasion merits a new outfit, right? 🙂

This will be my first 1/2 marathon, so wish me luck! I’m excited and ready for the challenge. I know I’m prepared, so nerves aren’t setting in …just yet. Plus, this was just another opportunity for a roomie-road trip, so they are all on board (yes!). We’ll be heading out late tomorrow afternoon, consuming lots o’ pasta, and relaxing. There will also be post-run celebrating, of course! A night out on the town, dancing, and drinking….doesn’t get any better than that.

Off we go!



  1. Good luck on your race. I’m sure you will feel really good when it is over.
