Lake Tahoe 10K: Bring it!
Tomorrow morning at the crack of dawn I will be huddling in the cold with dozens of other runners up at Lake Tahoe waiting for the start line shuttle bus. I actually feel far more ready tonight than I have the last couple weeks. I have remembered how much I learned from my first 10K, including making sure I have hydration and fuel with me. And I happened to check the weather forecast and realize that it is now going to be 20 degrees cooler than originally forecasted, which means I need something a little warmer. So I found this great top from Underarmor in my favorite colores that is comfortable, warm and breathable. Sure, it may travel to the finish line in a plastic bag but I will be SO happy I have it until then. All my gear is laid out and packed up. I have my meal strategy ready and more importantly, I know where I am supposed to be and when tomorrow. Heck, I even had an awesome moment at Scheel’s while picking up gels: I was actually asked if I was running the marathon tomorrow. OMG, no but that has to mean I am starting to look like a runner, right? Albeit a rather fluffy and slow one but still! So, I’ve put in the miles and I feel really good. This of course means, I will have my first DNF, right? HA! See you all at the finish line!
