Lining up at the starting line tomorrow!

Tomorrow morning, I'll running my first race of the calendar year: the St Patrick's Day road race.  This isn't a race I've been specifically training towards.  It's one that I signed up for fun and to give me my race rush.

I'm not sure what I'll be wearing.  Looks like it is likely to be just below freezing.  Depending on the wind, that could mean jacket, or not.  Could mean toque or cap.  Gloves?  Don't know yet.

I do know what number I'll be sporting.  Number 300, a nice even number.

If anyone else out there is running, feel free to come by and say hi!

Goals for this race?  Man, I'm wishy washy, but that depends too.

Up until yesterday, I was planning on running to the best of my ability and pushing myself.

Now, the weather forecast is calling for a chance of rain or wet snow this evening.  With likely freezing temperatures at race time, that might mean a skating rink.  Or, it might be totally clear pathways.

Right now, my main goal will be one that I've used before: roll with the punches.  Don't let things that are out of my control stress me out.

And have fun!


  1. Good luck!! Where is this one taking place?

  2. Good luck tomorrow! Hope you have a great time.

  3. Have a great race tomorrow! Can't wait to read all about it.

  4. I'll be there, would love to meet up with you! I'm easy to spot, I'll be the tall Chinese chick. Yes 6 ft tall - I'm not kidding you. Just ask Keith.

    So glad I saw this post...I'm also trying to figure out what to wear too. Plus I have a crazy outfit of sorts. Makes me feel better knowing I'm not the only one trying to sort things out in my mind for tomorrow!
