The Baltimore Ten Miler is like 36 hours away. Actually less. Back when I started this blog, I worked really hard to follow training plans and prepare for races. And now...not.
Kara is coming to run with me. Our team name is "I used to be faster". We were going to make shirts or something. But we have things to do. So we didn't.
Ashley is coming for the race too. But she's super fast. Like, so fast I won't even see her. She's coming to stay over tomorrow night so we can actually talk and catch up.
I have done a few things to prepare for the race.
- Long runs. 7-9 miles. LONG. In my mind, since I did maybe half of them with the stroller, the race will feel really easy, since I'll be on my own. Don't rob me of that fantasy, please.
- Running will always be there. These sweet little baby cuddles will not. But then Eric texted me he was picking him up because he was doing errands near daycare so I ran after work today! That was not intended to be a separate bullet but these bullets are not working with me.

- Hydrate. I'm always all over that one.
|Whether it's with water...|
|Or other beverages...|

- Dalton has been working hard to get me down to race weight. By eating all my food. I get really excited to share my favorite foods with him but then he eats it all because he's so cute I can't deny him. And then I'm still hungry. But too lazy to make myself something else. I'm so screwed when the teenage years arrive.
|His daycare lady sent me this while I was at work - LOVE.|
Long story short - I'll run slow, most likely suffer, and probably regret ever signing up. I don't have the motivation to exercise because it takes time away from my little love. But I've enjoyed some stroller training runs, some non stroller training runs with friends, and I'm looking forward to seeing my blogger friends. The end.
