Ready to Run

Good morning!!!

Nick and I are up, showered, dressed and eating oatmeal  :) I could not sleep last night because I was just thinking about today. I’m so excited!

I made a big bowl of oatmeal to help me through the race today:


  • 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • handful strawberries and blackberries
  • cinnamon
  • spoonful almond butter for staying power!


Check out that roasty almond chunk – yum.


So, my goals for this race are:

  • Finish!
  • Not walk unless absolutely necessary or through water stations, if needed
  • Finish in 1 hour or less*
  • Have fun!!!

*Most of these goals  are doable, but the time one….I’m not heart set on because I have no clue what this trail is like. I would be stoked with 1 hour finishing time, but if it takes me 1:15 because the trail is hilly/rocky/muddy/super tough, I am okay with that.

We have an hour and a half drive to the race, then a full day filled with seeing Nick’s parents and going shopping for a kayak!!! I’ll be posting a full recap once we’re back home later today!

Enjoy your Saturday!
