Woohoo! Last night Dean and I went to the Marathon Expo to pick up our race kits for tomorrow. I love expos!! There were tons of samples (sorry James, I MIGHT have eaten a little too much sugar yesterday ) and it was exciting to be amongst so much buzz and so many runners! Sorry but I didn’t find anything that would give me superhuman PR powers like I was hoping…
We stayed for about an hour and chatted with all kinds of people at the different booths. There was even some really weird ginormous colon for people to walk through. Don’t ask me what the purpose of it was but it was pretty weird. It probably had some sort of significance but I was more concerned with picture-taking (obviously!).
We ended up walking around downtown Toronto for quite a bit and now I have sore legs and feet. What a perfect addition to my non-training for this race. I predict I will be hobbling around like a 95-year-old grandma by the time this race is over and done with! Oh well. Those nice big medals make it totally worth it, right??
I was trying to come up with a meal plan for tomorrow because I know if I just wing it, I will have stomach issues come Sunday morning. I have made mistakes with my eating before races in the past (not to self: spicy Indian food is a big no-no). I have to make sure I don’t eat dairy, beans, too many green veggies, or anything spicy. Awesome, I know. For a vegetarian that leaves…..um, bread and fruit. Here is the plan as of right now:
I hope this works! It’s not much different from what I normally eat so I think I should be okay. I may even throw another meal in there if I get hungry before bed or some fruit throughout the day. PS – CCK = Chocolate Covered Katie
Wheeeee! I’m starting to get excited now! I think it’s going to be a really fun race and the weather looks like is going to be awesome! Good luck to everyone racing this weekend! I can’t wait to share race stories with all of you!
If you participate in races, what is your go-to meal the night before a race?
What is/was for breakfast this morning?!
