Packet Pick Up!

So my best laid plan was to wake up early to get a run in early enough so that it wouldn't interfere with the 5K tomorrow. 

Ya, that didn't happen. 

Those margaritas were much stronger than I thought they were, and when I woke up at 6 am, my eyes refused to open.  Actually I didn't fight with them all that hard, but whatever.  I considered going to zumba, but the time flew by and before I knew it it was too late.

But, I'm okay with that.  Since I've never done this before and I don't know how the adrenaline flows and all that, I think maybe it's not so bad taking a day of rest before the race. 

Grace Kelly and I went to lunch with our kiddos and then went to pick up our packets.  I was so excited, I made Kelly take a picture of me as we were leaving.

Number 208 Baby!

Our friend Leslie and her son are joining us.  This will be their first race, too.  Her son is really liking running, and just learned how to land softer and use his feet to increase his speed.  He was very excited about that and Kelly and I are wondering if we have a future track star in our midst.  We will be able to say that "we knew him when he did his first 5K!"

I'm excited, and I feel very confident that we will have a great time, even if I come in last.  I'm still a warrior princess and still faster than the couch!
