This morning I got up at 6am for no good reason since the race starts at 4pm today. I thought the late start would be cool; no, it’s just a really effective way of making you waste an entire day being nervous and wishing it was 4pm already.
So I left the hotel at 7:45am to go to a coffee shop and do some internetting.
Jaybo met me a little later and we went to the Planet Hollywood sports book where I sat and surfed the web while he watched football. It worked out because I couldn’t nag him about how bored I was like I normally do.
On our way back to the hotel to eat, I met readers Maggie, Tricia and mom Barbara (sorry if I spelled names wrong or got them wrong completely!) who were very sweet and said hi. Good luck today, girls!
I was talking which is why I look constipated. and I might have been constipated.
Since I had left the hotel room really early and hadn’t been back, I was wearing Nike running tights and my shoes. Didn’t realize it at the time but I’m sure I looked like a major doofus who got ready for the race about 8 hours in advance. at least I didn’t have my bib on yet…
We ate at Holsteins in the Cosmopolitan around 12:45. I’m going to do a post later on everything I ate and when since that’s a question everyone (me included) has… what do I eat for a late afternoon race?!
Holsteins is a pretty rad burger and shake joint with all sorts of ice cream concoctions, alcoholic shakes, and tons of different burgers with an emphasis on organic products.
I had the classic burger without mayo or cheese on a wheat bun with steak fries. and water, no shakes here.
The burger was awesome – one of the better burger I’ve had. I ate half the fries and gave the rest to Jay; they were decent but nothing mind blowing.
Now I just hope it all has time to digest… I am nervous! I just want the race to start already. blah.
2009, my first marathon
2010, my 12th marathon
My 24th marathon today with these ladies…
and possibly some crazy lighted headgear.
Thanks to Refuel with Chocolate Milk for partnering with me on this race!
Off to do #24
