Today is the day! Today I will be adding two firsts to my running resume. I will be completing my first marathon relay and I will be running my first trail run!
Ashley and I picked up our race packets at the North Face store in Georgetown yesterday. One awesome thing about running a North Face event is the sweet North Face gear! I love the shirts!
We also got some Gu Chomps, Nuun tablets, chap stick (which is my all time favorite thing to get in a race swag bag!) and a bag/
My team name for the relay is appropriately Run to Eat.
I will be running the race with team members Cara, Amanda and Gretchen. I can’t wait to meet them for the first time at the race later today. I love the beauty of blogging – you can be genuine friends with people you have never actually met!
Jackson decided to hang out with me while I snapped some pictures of my race gear.
Jackson did a pretty sweet job of helping me model my race bib.
I think he looks better with it than I ever will.
Jackson hung out in the kitchen with us while we ate.
We had the perfect pre-race breakfast. Chocolate chip pancakes with grapes, bananas and strawberries.
Drizzled in sugar free syrup.
Stacked 4 pancakes high! They were delish!
We are off to run our little hearts out! See ya at the finish line!
