|I might pack some PJs and underwear. But, running stuff is most important!|
2. LJ should arrive in South Dakota before me. We'll then drive 25 minutes south of the airport to Mt. Rushmore. Oh yeah! I figured out last week how close we are. We should have plenty of time to see the mountain and possibly the National Presidential Wax Museum. Spearfish is over an hour drive away through the Black Hills. We just need to get to the expo by 5pm to pick up our bibs.
3. Not only is he going to chauffeur me to the airport, but S found the last of the Salted Caramel Gu in the Portland area!
|Mine. All mine.|
4. One year ago this weekend, I was dashing off to Parkersburg, West Virginia, to tackle The News and Sentinel Half Marathon in state #11.
|L, me and B in Parkersburg.|
5. Which brings me to my goal for this Sunday. In spite of the start at 5,000 feet, and the weather showing a low of 63 and a high of 91, I really want to crush a sub 2. I have been babying my calf and doing yoga like it's going out of style. I'm going to trust my training, carry water and take a Gu around mile 4 and mile 8. The course will be beautiful and deliciously downhill. Let's do this!
Good luck to everyone racing this weekend. Safe travels!
