The race is TOMORROW.

Here is a recap of some of my most memorable runs over my training 🙂

My adrenaline is pumping and I can hardly think about anything else except the marathon. This energy is insane!

So for breakfast, I just devoured this yummy bowl of oats..

I made a batch for my parents and myself. My portion was approximately~

  • 1/2 oats
  • 1 cup diced fruit (naner, donut peach)
  • coconut butter, honey about 1/2 tbs each
  • cinnamon, walnuts

Sooo filling! I also enjoyed a cup of Teeccino Chocolate Mint ‘Coffee’. It’s not really a coffee it’s more like an herbal tea coffee replacement.

I’m just about packed and ready to head out to the race expo to pick up my bib and other race goodies. I’m heeding the warning given last night at the pasta dinner to NOT TRY ANYTHING NEW!

I think it makes total sense! I’ve been training on water, coconut water, and CLIF shots all of which have worked for me for the past 6 months, so I don’t plan on trying a new product that may upset my stomach or something else during the race. I’ve worked too hard for there to be a mix up!

I treated myself to an outfit from Lululemon, to wear for the race! I tested it out earlier this week on my four mile run I did on Tuesday, just to make sure it felt good. I give it two thumbs up! I’ll also be wearing my lucky compression socks, and also my snazzy Pacetat! I’m hoping to finish in the 4 hour range, running at a loose 9 minute mile pace. If I finish a little later than that I won’t be devastated.

I’ve also pre-packed breakfast for tomorrow: oats, pb, and a banana. I’m hoping to use the bowls at the hotel and maybe a microwave oven (even though I’d rather use a stove) to heat breakfast. My favorite power breakfast before my long runs . Pre-packing it is the only way I’ll know everything is organic!

Well this is it! Next time I post, I’ll officially be a marathon finisher! Can’t wait to tell you all how it went!!

P.S. I will DEFINITELY be jamming to this on Sunday!! 😉
