After that excitement, going down to Copley to pick up my race stuff couldn't be any more thrilling, could it?
Yes, as I was coming out of Marathon sports with my stuff, they were just running a race past me where everyone ran in their underwear. It's the Santa Speedo Run and it looks like a good time. At least it does this year, when it's not exceedingly cold.
People where having a good time while they ran. There was even a guy doing back handsprings down the road, finishing with a full backflip! Everyone was laughing and smiling. Hmmm....2012? Well, if my abs look awesome...
As for my race swag for tomorrow, it was nothing to write home about. No t-shirt, but I did get a pair of gloves and a hat, neither of which I love, so they will act as good winter spare/tossaways.
I think I did get a good number:
I like it because it is just sub-500, which makes me think of my goal of sub-30. It's meant to be! What is disappointing is that there doesn't appear to be chip timing. I will depend on my Garmin for official time.
After seeing some fun runners, I ended up at the grocery store with some fun items.
|Yes - that keyboard is where the magic happens|
Persimmons! I love them sooooo much. They are just about my favorite fruit. I've only had them once outside of California, so I was surprised that when I walked into Shaws there they were! 2 for $1! I bought four and ate one already; the others will be flying out with me tomorrow!
I am excited for my race tomorrow and for my week long business trip. On the downside, I will miss putting up an ornament on my advent calendar every day.
