How I roll... Pre-marathon.

This week I was all about getting to bed early, eating healthy, no alcohol and taking care of myself.

And then of course I stayed up late the past 3 nights in a row and got shit-faced on wine last night (when I told myself prior to going out that I wasn't drinking any alcohol, and THEN I told myself that I was just having one glass, and THEN I told myself that I was just making sure that the wine really was that good, and THEN I forgot all about the damn marathon on Saturday morning and had 2 more glasses).

Awesome.

Sigh.

I'll never learn, I suppose.

So this morning I'm working and consuming large and possibly dangerous amounts of  detox tea, because that totally erases last night's damage (shhhh... don't you say a word). I'll get my pre-race pizza fix in at lunch and I'm going to leave work early to get things done at home before I crash hopefully around 7/7:30 tonight.

Wake up call in the morning is 4:15 with a ETD of 5:00am.

Huntsville, here I come! :)

I'm sure I'll tweet before and after the race, but full Race Report next week. Have a great weekend everyone!

Good luck on your race. I am sure you will be fine once you toe the line! Who knows, it could cleanse your system and get you ready to go...

Good luck, girl!!! I look forward to all the details!

I hope you get that PR!

I'm heading to Jacksonville next weekend for a little unfinished business. The Jax marathon is pancake flat--like if the Tom King course was a full marathon. Can't go wrong there, am I right?
