A month from today, I will be running my marathon. Goofy will be almost over and well on it's way to becoming a memory. It is insane that it has snuck up on me so quickly. Heck - I am only 2 weeks away from taper!
1) I have officially started packing.
Yes - I now. It seems early,but since I don't need to worry about wearing my summer-weight running clothes for the next month in Alberta - I might as well get them ready for Florida.
Plus, I am toying with the idea of not bringing my toaster and trying to pack 4 days worth of running and sightseeing clothes into a carry-on to save time at the airport. If I had a more portable toaster, I might try to bring it along, but alas, one has not been inveted yet (though my best friend, Mr. Google, tells me several options are currently in concept mode. Yeah - I'm a geek). Now I am on the hunt for hotel room friendly race day breakfasts.
2) We had an early holiday celebration with my family last weekend and my dad gave me a gift card to Sport Chek...so I went and bought my 5k and marathon shoes. I am all set in the footwear department! Now to break them in slowly over the next month.
3) and, this one is a bit off the topic of Goofy, but I had to mention it anyway...I found out yesterday that I am the iFitness Runner of the Month. Very exciting stuff. I applied months ago so some of my race stats are a bit off in the writeup...but it is still really cool to be featured. Head on over and check it out here.
And, in closing, I feel I should remind you all about the Virtual Half Goofy fundraiser I am hosting. Registration closes on SATURDAY!!!! So, if you've been wanting to sign up - get your registrations in now. I will be drawing for the prizes on Sunday.
