1. P and I are leaving TONIGHT! We are staying in Mobile tonight and getting up bright and early to head to New Orleans to enjoy our day Friday. Eating and shopping. That is my plan. I have mapped out our places for Friday and the rest of the weekend is a free-for-all (other than dinner Saturday night). These will be my one cheat on lent of the weekend. I also must find a poboy but finding a non-fried one may be hard…I think I am just as excited about the food as I am the race.
2. I know I have said it many times, but in case you missed previous posts…this race is for fun for me. It is a training run for Big Sur and I have 2 more 1/2 marathons this month so I want to take it easy. My plan is to run with Kim and maybe Becca (depending on her goal)–Kim wants a sub 2. I think we got that in the bag. This course is flat, fast and tons of fun. We are going to be matchy matchy in Team Sparkle Skirts. This will be my first Sparkle run. I briefly met Becca last year in Mobile and look forward to seeing her again. This will be my first time meeting Kim. Although I feel like I already know her. Gotta love blogs.
Allison and Chris (sis and bro-in-law) are running too. This is also P’s first 1/2 marathon!!! I’m so excited for him!! I know he will do great. He continues to joke about his race day outfit…I think he has heard me stress about mine one too many times.
3. My plan was to beat the crowds at the expo and go on Friday. I may or may not be coveting new Runningskirts.com skirts and need to see them asap. I will hopefully be back on Saturday for the blogger/twitter meet up.
