I’m here! I arrived in DC, safe and sound, and now I’m relaxing with Katie before the big race tomorrow morning. Our plan is to hit the hay by 9:00 tonight to get a good night’s sleep, so this post is going to be short and sweet. I need my race sleep!
I ended up catching an early train into the city, so I had about 1.5 hours to kill at the airport.
To pass the time, I grabbed a cinnamon-flavored iced coffee from Starbucks, snacked on a banana, and enjoyed some good reading material.
When I arrived in DC, I got a little lost on the Metro system. Usually, I’m a whiz with public transportation, but my brain wasn’t all there today.
Eventually, I made it to the expo to pick up my race number.
I haven’t been to many race expos, but this one seemed pretty small.
Even still, I was happy to see Back on My Feet there!
I also bumped into a bunch of blogger buddies!
I never really ate a ”˜real’ lunch this afternoon. I ate a few samples at the expo and later dug into my goodie bag for snacks.
After the expo, I met Katie, who had to work today. At her house, I snacked on an apple and a ton of water. I was so dehydrated after traveling today.
For dinner, we whipped bowtie pasta with marinara sauce, homemade garlic bread, and salad. It was the perfect pre-race meal.
I miss my little pug, but look who is sleeping with me tonight!
I can’t believe that I am running a half marathon tomorrow! I feel so unprepared! Wish me luck!
