Excited about the race...not so excited about the t-shirt

Because that logo...ain't cute.

I've got that fluttery feeling in my stomach and I can hardly concentrate at work! It must be almost...RACE DAY.

The Rodes City Run is pretty big in terms of a 10k-- something like 7,000 runners and 15,000 spectators. My biggest concern is running in a crowd that size-- and, moreover, eating pavement in front of a crowd that size.

Tonight I'm off to pick up my packet and persuade Hubs to let me invest in a new's going to be a little chilly at the starting line tomorrow!

I know I went on and on about my race goals, but only race goal (other than to finish) is to get a decent race photo.

Now, THAT would be a true victory.

*** UPDATE on persuading Hubs to let me buy more clothes ***

I used dinner plans as a bargaining chip...I wanted pizza, he wanted Mexican:

BB: If we go to El Nopal, can I go to Target?


  1. Oooohhh too exciting!! I will be thinking of you this weekend, run fast!

  2. GOOD LUCK! im so excited for you :)

  3. Good Luck on the race, kick that pavement's butt...and that logo - what?!?! lol

  4. Thanks ladies! I really appreciate it!

  5. Best of luck! And the shirt ain't that bad ;)

  6. Nice negotiating techniques!!! I love it, I would certainly do the same.

    And you are completely right - that shirt represents challenge and accomplishment and an UGLY logo all at the same time..
