I'm sitting in my hotel in Seaside, California. I have my bib and my bus ticket for 4:45 tomorrow morning. I can't believe it is almost finally here. :)
I did my Big Sur dress rehearsal run today. So you can see what I am wearing for the race on Sunday ... Red Nike singlet, black and white Asics shorts, Adidas socks, and my Garmin. Definitely going with my IT band strap due to the reported severe camber of the road in the Carmel Highlands. I'm also planning to carry my little Fuji camera in a spibelt.
Leaving tomorrow morning and can't wait! Finally, California here I come!
Just four more days! When I first registered in October, I almost thought this week would never come, and yet now here it is. It was hard to concentrate at work today. I've been doing a lot of stretching and work with my Stick to hopefully get my legs ready for the hills out at Big Sur ...
Right now the forecast is really good for Sunday morning. Weather.com is predicting a low of 45 degrees on Saturday night with a high of 68 on Sunday. I would like it better if the high were 64 or something, but I'll take it. The wind is predicted to be light for Big Sur - NE at 7 MPH. (Once again, according to Weather.com.)
I saw my oncologist pulling out of Starbucks the other morning. He took the time to roll down his window and give me a good luck, Jen! It meant a lot that he took the time to give me a good luck on his way to work. :)
I will post some more tomorrow on what I'm wearing and my specific plans. Basically, my hope for the race is to do everyone proud -- everyone being my family, the medical people who worked so hard to make me well, my fellow cancer warriors, and my friends. If I can just do that, I will consider the day a rousing success, no matter what my time.
