TOSSING AND TURNING

Not much to report today. For some reason I’ve been tossing and turning the last few nights. Usually, before a race I sleep well, at least up until the night before. I don’t know if it’s nerves or what. I don’t feel nervous during the day. At least my legs feel good. This morning I walked Bailey and I could feel a little spring in them.

I hate to admit it but I’ve been looking at the forecast a little. There’s a local weatherman who runs. In 2001 I emailed him a few days before Grandma’s and asked him the forecast. I think it was about 10 degrees warmer than he thought it’d be and there was a headwind instead of a tailwind. So I don’t put too much stock in the forecast until I stick my head out the door on race morning.

I’m only working (okay, “at work”) half a day today. This afternoon Kinsey and I are going to drive to my parent’s house. Then tomorrow I’ll drive to Duluth (about 75 miles). That way I won’t have to drive 5 hours the day before the race. Plus that’ll give Kinsey a chance to have a sleepover with Grandma and Grandpa. They haven’t decided if they’re going to come to the race or not. I kind of hope they decide to bring Kinsey since she seems to really like it when I take her to races. Plus it means we’d have a 2.5 hour drive on Saturday instead of 5 hours. If they don’t come I may decided to stay in Duluth Saturday night. I been to this race lots of times and have heard lots of good things about the post-race party. However, I’ve never stayed for it.

Anyway, this will probably be my last entry until at least Sunday.
