short sleeve shirt, arm sleeves, Brooks Cascadia (trail shoes) on the trail portion, Brooks Adrenaline for the road portion.
It's been a toss up between my new tights or shorts, but then things took a fascinating twist when my new capris (my first ever pair of running capris!) were waiting for me at work Wednesday night, increasing my outfit choices by 50%.
Just as you thought things couldn't get any more exciting, the high is now predicted to be 51 for race day, which is too hot for tights, bringing me back to down to two choices: my new capris or my Fire on the Mountain outfit - compression shorts, skirt, and compression sleeves.
The wisest thing for me to do is to leave this until the last minute, as I'm giving a math test tomorrow and would like to utilize all that time to silently agonize over this decision. Until then, I'll throw every possibility onto my bedroom floor to sort through tomorrow night.
|So far I have three different sock options.|
For my final race preparation, I ran 4 easy miles after work tonight. My outfit choice is probably the only reason I ran at all this week, I had to test out my new clothes. The run felt good, and the teeniest bit of excitement is starting to creep through all the nervousness.
Remember when I was all like, "I'm cutting down on sugar prior to the race, I only ate two thin mints on Monday, you should all be in awe of my amazing willpower"? The very next night I challenged Eric to each eat a whole sleeve of thin mints. I don't even know how this even constitutes a challenge, since I was already almost done with mine and it had two missing from the previous night and maybe even more. It was really more like "let's be fatties but pretend its all in the name of competition". Still, it was a delicious competition, and we were both winners.
The question is obvious: cast your vote for option 1 or option 2!
