It May Seem Silly, but...

...now that I have planned my marathon outfit, I feel more prepared.

I would show you a picture of my outift, but either Blogger or my home computer is being a be-atch and I can't seem to load the pic.

Anyway, I am wearing my fav Nike shorts with a Reebok short-sleeved technical shirt which should do its duty and wick away all that sweat, my fav Brooks sports bra (I know, I'm mixing many brands, but I'm not loyal like that), a new pair of Balega socks (I heart them -- they are awesome) and my Brooks shoes, which are relatively new -- bought them about three weeks ago (new enough to be radical, but broken in enough to, hopefully, leave me blister-free).

So, I'm set.

The forecast in Orlando calls for a nice day, so I think these choices will work well.

Gotta go: I need to get my last short run in, and pack the rest of my stuff. I'll leave you with a short post tomorrow and then I'm off to Disney!!

P.S. I don't pick up my bib and race packet until I get to the Expo, but my race # on my packet info is 6978, not sure if that will be my actual bib # or not, but it bodes well: "69" always an awesome #, and "78" is my birth year, also tubular (yes, I'm trying to bring back Ninja Turtle talk). So, if you are so inclined to track me via the Internet on Sunday, you can use that #.

Whoot woo! We are pumped and ready for you. I agree, getting the outfit laid out is one of the best stress reducers. It's a girl thing; the guys won't understand.

Have a great Time JESS,

I am training for my First Marathon also... I live in FL and will do the Walt Disney in 08' but going to probably have done one or 2 -- so that will be my third one and by that time I should have had some good practice --lol

Kick BUTT but mostly have FUN!!

You are ready to rock and roll, Jess! I can't wait to hear all about this race...Disney is definitely on my list of marathons to run!

Are you planning on visiting any of the parks while you're at Disney...aside from running through them all like a crazy woman?

Mike and I are cheering for you from Chicago! You're going to be brilliant!
