Three Things Thursday: Pre-Race Edition

1) I'm sick.  Ish.  
I woke up with a sore throat yesterday so stayed home from work to try to kill it off.  Thanks to a whole lot of Magic Multivitamins and some extra strength Cold FX, I am not getting any worse.   I am hopeful I can hold it off until after the race (or avoid it altogether).

So I'll be taking it pretty easy - despite all of my plans leading up to the race.  and the "candies" I'm noshing are just vitamin C...and yes - 400 of them a day is perfectly ok :P  Figures that my mommunity would fail me right as taper hits...

2) One more sleep
My bags are packed.  My flight is checked in.  By this time tomorrow - I will be in Vancouver, ready to celebrate another race weekend!

Do you have any idea how many chargers a running blogger needs to bring with her to document a weekend?  I have phone, camera, laptop and garmin chargers.  Luckily I don't run with an iPod or I'd need that charger too.  My carry on is going to be just chargers and running shoes at this rate...thank goodness my blackberry and kobo take the same charger...

ah yes and with the weather forecast change, I am thinking a rain jacket might be a necessity - even for peace of mind.  And my coworker made me laugh today about the one I want (and have been avoiding buying)  It's a great jacket - transparent grey and fits so nice...but it has a hot pink zipper garage.  She's heard me talking about it for weeks and today I showed her a picture of it and, when she saw the pink...she looked at me and totally scolded me about being hung up on about a square inch of pink...the "Co-riii" that came flying out of her mouth made me feel so stupid.  Now, I need to figure if I have time to go get it after work...

3) Blogger Q & A at the Expo
Saturday afternoon, I will be part of the Sports Blogger Q&A at the Marathon Expo at Canada Place.  It is between 1-2pm.  For more info about all of the events happening this weekend, the Race Weekend events are all posted on the website

and yes, I am nervous.  This will be the first time I speak in public about my blogging. booing or throwing of squishy fruits, ok...

Oh ya - and there are only 5 days left to vote in the top 25 Outdoorsy Mom blogs of 2012...I'm still in the top 20 so if y'all wouldn't mind popping over and sending a vote my way - I would love you forever!!!


  1. Have a wonderful and safe trip/race--i'll be thinking about you!!

  2. Have a great weekend in Vancouver and enjoy the race!! I am crossing my fingers for a rain free morning for you. Can't wait to hear all the detai
