SO. The clothes! The most important part!
The original plan was for Kerrie & I to race in our respective college's colors (since they are in-state rivals), but I have yet to find a purple running skirt/plan adequately. This plan has been nixed.
Weather should be in the high 50s/low 60s, edging closer to 70 by the time we finish. With this in mind, I'll be running in a lululemon tanktop (Black Citron Cool Racerback) & running skirt.
I've done all of my long runs in the skirt + either capris or my Moving Comfort 7-Inch inseam shorts. The shorts are a bit snug (accidentally dried them in dryer. WHOOPS.) No worries, Zappos is delivering new ones tomorrow. (Needed another pair anyways...they were my only pair of running shorts!)
What else? Mike & I are sitting down to coordinate spectating spots for him & Mel's hubs. I'm hoping to put him around Mile 3, at Mile 6-7, and Mile 9/Finish Line. (yes, we run PAST the finish line at mile 9 and go out on an out & back). I want him staged and ready at the finish!
For water/nutrition - going to rely on water stops first half, and have my Nathan Handheld w/ Nuun ready w/ Mike if I need it at mile 6. I plan on gu'ing and chomping early...even just the placebo/mental part of taking it for that early in the morning will help!
I've come to realize that while I trained my ASS off for a 2:35 finish...I'm not at 100%. 6 weeks ago I couldn't even run! So. While this will be my first half, it can only get better from here!
