Go, Erin, go!

Working mom, wife, food-lover, ultra-runner(?). This is my life.

Two days, time to start packing. . . May 16, 2008

Filed under: marathon — Erin @ 8:42 am

Two days from right now (9:36 AM CST) I will be around mile 14 in the marathon.  Woo hoo!

I slowly got over my mood yesterday.  It helped that I went out to dinner with two girlfriends and had a great time.  I had a margarita to unwind and it did the job.  We had a nice meal and good coversation, exactly what I needed.  I got home just short of 10:00 PM (late for me!), took Riley out for a walk, and read just before bed. 

I also started laying out all my goods that I need to take with me when I leave tomorrow. 
So far, I’ve laid out:
  Short sleeved technical top
  Long sleeved technical top (just incase)
  Running shorts
  Running Shoes
  Fig Newtons
  Gummy Life Savers
  Baggies for the food mentioned above
  Immodium AD
  Peanut Butter
  Grape Jelly

The things still to pack are:
  Jog bra(s)
  Post-run clothing (comfy pants, t-shirt, North Face hoodie)
  Blanket (for the drive home, I get massive chills after a long run)
  Wheat Bread (for PB&J sandwich for breakfast)

I think that’s at. Fellow runners, or anyone else for that matter, am I forgetting anything?

    Basket of porn?

  2. Erin Says:

    Cheryl’s bringing that. 😉

    Ahhh…nothing like a run through Rockford, IL with a basket of porn. Reminds me of a magical time.

    GO ERIN GO!!!!

  4. Sara Z Says:

    What about an “ERIN HAS BALLS” sign????? That’s worked for a runner I know! 😉 Although it might confuse people who take it literally in your case …

  5. Erin Says:

    I like it! Unfortunately, I’ve no one to hold the sign for me.

    I was thinking of putting “I heart Pauly Bleaker” on my running shirt, but have run out of time. Oh well. Pauly will be in my heart.

  6. Meg Says:

    Have a fabulous run, darling! 🙂 I can’t wait to hear about it!

  7. Alan Says:

    To clarify, that basket of porn is for the hotel room, not to run with.

  8. Dee Says:

    Allen, I think she’ll be too tired.


  9. Dee Says:

    Oops – spelled you name wrong – sorry Alan


  10. Cristen Says:

    so am I the only one that would think carrying a basket of porn while running a marathon makes sense?

  11. Erin Says:

    Perhaps. At least you are th eonly one who reads my blog that thinks it makes sense.
