No backing out now. I have my time chip, bracelet, t-shirt and a case of nerves like you would not believe. I did my pre-run registration today and driving up to the casino (The run is happening at a local casino with a huge field in the front yard) I caught a few early glimpses of the course, it's not uber-daunting, and I'm both thrilled and excited about this.
So the plan with the Munches is that the whole fam (Jeeves, Mutti, Booger and Pumpkin) is going to be there to see me off, then Mutti is going to stay an watch and the others are going to go and doing something for an hour or two and then come back to see me cross the finish line. I will of course be posting pictures, Hopefully there will be a few really good ones. I'll probably post a picture of me tonight in my race get-up, pre-mud bath.I'm going to braid my hair, I figure that will keep it out of my face and I've got a bandana with an amazing woman's name written on it to remind me that this isn't just something I'm doing it's something she is dealing with everyday. She's amazing. You can check out her blog here.
I got some eating tips for tonight and tomorrow, from a fellow blogger and runner who inspires me. Apparently carbs are the key to keeping me going during this thing, so I'm making some pasta for dinner tonight for me and one of my team mates. Then tomorrow I'll be up early, have a small cup of coffee and eat something with a bit of protein and carbs about 2 hours pre-race.
We are also finishing our T-shirts tonight. I have to go buy some orange paint to do the Muck You butt pants, the T-shirt has orange in it, I think it will look cool.
I am not getting anything done today...I don't know why I'm even trying. Cripes.
