blah blah blah

I wasn't going to post anything on this, the day before race day. I think no matter what I post it's just going to sound like blah blah blah and who really cares but THEN I picked up my race kit.

I've decided that I'd like to share that I REALLY REALLY want to throw up, I mean alot.  I should be hydrating but I can't stop drinking coffee and diet coke, this needs to stop very soon.  The shirt in the race kit is really nice, I'm mostly excited about that.  I got my number (1145) and found out my wave goes at 9:20(somethingorother), I didn't really pay that much attention.  I picked up a race belt because I figured it's the easiest way to manage the number and at the moment I'm fully convinced I'll do another race so the race belt is a good purchase.  Tomorrow I am sure I'll be thinking more along the lines of 'what the fuck was I thinking?' (sorry mom) and start imagining new uses for the race belt.

Here's a question, I understand why the safety pins came in my race kit but is there a purpose for the elastics?

on that note folks.. blah blah blah

Yay you! If its not pouring rain and the Mrs finds the energy to get out of bed, we'll see you there! We're packed and ready, we'll just use on-site registration. I'll be with my 3 sons - most likely the loudest annoying cheering section around. Come say hi!
Good luck in your race! The most important part is to have fun, I expect to see you smiling the whole time ;)

skierz - thanks so much for the kind comment. I am going to enjoy this, all of it, no matter what! Look forward to following you next weekend.

FFS - I have not had an answer about the elastics, although on friend suggested I race in pigtails?

JohnP - I really hope it's not pouring rain. I will look for the loud crew! I will smile the entire time, I promise.

Enjoy tomorrow's race and have fun. During the race you will think not to do anymore races but that feeling soon disappears.

don't know the length of the elastic you got but we also get them in our race packs. you use it as a "race belt" Make a knot and wear it around your waist with the number pinned to it.

Have Fun

The elastics are to put you're hair in a pony tail. I do it all the time before I race. hahaha.

Good luck.
