Good morning from 6 AM on race day! The sun is just trying to poke it's head out right now. Luckily this race has a late-ish 9 AM start. UN-luckily, my alarm clock set itself head an hour so I was up at 5:30 instead of 6:30. Oh well.
Yesterday evening I met up with my friend Diana for happy hour. We both ordered cocktails to start. Diana was feeling adventurous and tried a sriracha infused vodka martini, while I stayed inside my comfort zone with an Old Fashioned.
Afterwards, we ordered a bottle of champagne, 'cause
we're classy it was only 20 bucks!

After a few hours of thorough race preparation, I headed home to catch some extra z's. I awoke to find some inspiration on my kitchen table:
Dear running gods:
If I can't have Kara Goucher's abs, at least give me a little bit of her speed.
Now I'm off to my first trail race EVER, and first official race of 2013! Have a wonderful Saturday!
