Pre-Race Randomness

So the family and I made it into DC yesterday. The boys’ desire for lunch (read whinning) had us arriving at the Expo later than I had hoped so I missed out on some blogger meetups…but we all know that when traveling with kids holding to a plan/schedule rarely happens šŸ™‚

The boys did indulge me while I wandered the expo a bit — they got a kick out of Brooks’ carnival-like set up, especially playing skee ball, and made it their mission to collect stickers from as many vendors as possible!Ā I got to check out a few new products, sample some Nuun flavors and chat with the KT Tape reps (got some samples of their new PRO tape I’m looking forward to trying!) before my guys announced they were done. We had a lazy evening and my oldest was thrilled to discover the hotel’s hot tub!

Today will be a delicate balance between sight-seeing and not being on me feet too much.

I’m feeling very antsy….I have been all week. I had a great final long run last Saturday and since then I’ve just been feeling on edge. On the whole, it’s been a pretty good training cycle, now I’m just eager to see what happens.

I know there are a number of big races happening this weekend so
I wish all of you running good luck, a strong tailwind and swift feet!
