Today my folks and I went to the race expo to pick up our race packets for tomorrow!
As at least one of my readers/friends has noticed, this post is going up in the evening rather than the morning like most of my posts. This is because I have guests and sitting down to blog is not really being a good host. So I walked my parents all over town and tired them out. Then we watched This is Spinal Tap for film club, made some delicious spaghetti for dinner, and then watched Jurassic World staring my future husband Chris Pratt.
Because we are all getting up very early to be at the starting line we are pretty close to bedtime here. I haven’t even made the official decision on what to wear other than my St. Jude’s tank top they sent me for race day.
Speaking of St. Jude’s, I just want to thank everyone who donated. Aside from the difference it makes in the lives of all the children helped by St. Jude’s, it also means a lot to me personally that so many of you stepped up to donate and made it possible for me to raise almost double my original goal. I’ll be thinking of you when running starts to hurt and I start wishing I was on my couch scarfing pizza ninja turtle style.
Thanks again guys. My post about the race itself will probably go up Sunday. I can’t wait to tell you all about it.
