6 days to go - no workout today

Only 6 days to go - I'm going to start packing today - got my lists ready yesterday . . . I have so much to fit into such a little suitcase. I think i'm going to wear a tank top and buy a throw away shirt and gloves to take with me and ditch around mile 2.

I think I'll take the blueline from O'hare to get to the hotel - or at least as far as I can, then take a taxi. I'm also leaving on Sunday and need to arrange for late check out . . . at this point I think I'm just rambling.

I still need to add a couple more songs to my iPod . . . get a new hat . . . more gu . . . rambles on

Hmmm...rambling is what I do best. Take a deep breath and make a list of your lists to make sure you don't forget anything!

:) Not long now...

Remember - they will have gu and a ton of other essentials at the EXPO. So if you do forget something you don't have to panic. Maybe we can all catch up w/eachother at the expo. (Good idea on the tank and throw away clothing!) I have to create a marathon play list on my IPOD. I started my list ~ I feel like I need to take 2 large suitcases but that would be out of control!

Is great to know how you are preparing for the bog day!! And is good to have disposal clothes instead of me, running with the jacket in my hand...grrrr

All the suitcases are so small!!And is great you can use disposal clothes for the race, instead of carring you just through them away.
What kind of music do you prefer? recomend me some!! well maybe next week you will, now go on with that list!!

There hundreds of great gyms in texas, but they do work their asses off. And many are very hard on little kids

It might be nippy in the morning but it'll turn out to be a wonderful day for running in the 50s.
I love planning the trip, plotting race strategy, packing and travelling out of town for a race. It's like they had to call in the running nuts to clean up the city and that's what we're gonna do; not that I'll be there but you will! So have some fun!
