Race Day Morning

I woke up this morning after a pretty restless night. I just couldn’t  get comfortable. I am not sure if it was the excitement of the race or what, but I just couldn’t fall asleep! I hate it when you want and need to go to sleep so badly, and then you just can’t! The worst! I woke up this morning at 5:15am, rearing to go! I made myself another Amazing Grass drink. This one was chocolate, and it wasn’t as exciting because I didn’t have it in a fancy glass with ice. It was a green monster on the go!

I went down to the hotel breakfast buffet and there were lots of people eating and getting ready for the race! I had an English muffin, with barney butter topped with bananas! The perfect pre-race meal! I love pb and bananas! I got a muffin too, but didn’t eat it. It definitely hits the spot. I wasn’t very hungry, but I ate it all because I needed the fuel for the big race!

I got dressed and ready to go and was excited to hit the pavement. I looked out the window and……..TORNTIAL DOWNPOUR! It was lightening and everything! I checked the freaking weather all week and there was NO mention of rain. Every race I run in, it rains! Boo to that! And I didn’t pack any of my rain gear with me so that totally sucked. I had to swipe a trash bag from the hotel, but it kept me pretty dry while I waited. The rain was freezing. It was so cold. People we literally shaking standing in line!
