Beware of Copperheads!

So apparently we just found out that there is a copperhead snake infestation in the Great Falls Park area of where we are running! When we picked up the race packets yesterday we were told to keep an eye out for them, but to just keep running.

Sweet advice.

Snakes very much scare me so hopefully we won’t have any encounters! I may freak out! Fingers crossed they stay away!

I am pumped to  meet the rest of my team – Run to Eat!

We made special shirts in honor of today! They are Jackson approved, which is pretty important.

Run To Eat

Today is the day! Today I will be adding two firsts to my running resume. I will be completing my first marathon relay and I will be running my first trail run!

Ashley and I picked up our race packets at the North Face store in Georgetown yesterday. One awesome thing about running a North Face event is the sweet North Face gear! I love the shirts!

We also got some Gu Chomps, Nuun tablets, chap stick (which is my all time favorite thing to get in a race swag bag!) and a bag/

My team name for the relay is appropriately Run to Eat.

I will be running the race with team members Cara, Amanda and Gretchen. I can’t wait to meet them for the first time at the race later today. I love the beauty of blogging – you can be  genuine friends with people you have never actually met!

Jackson decided to hang out with me while I snapped some pictures of my race gear.

Jackson did a pretty sweet job of helping me model my race bib.

I think he looks better with it than I ever will.

After a good night’s sleep last night, Ashley, Meghann and I woke up to my mom making up chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast.
