I realized at the race on Sunday that what I thought I was going to wear for my marathon in California is not going to work. It is not a good thing to be back at the drawing board 2 weeks before a marathon. Yesterday I called my favorite purveyor of running skirts (SkirtSports) and asked them if they could get me one pronto! I ordered it yesterday and it was sitting on my porch waiting for me when I got home from work today. The really surprising part? It fits and I like it. I think I am going to wear that crazy purple shirt with it. I wore it on Sunday and it was fine. It was just the compression capris that I realized would be too hot in California temperatures - even though they are WAY cuter on me than a skirt.
I laid out my clothes tonight and had such a feeling of excitement. I am flying to California, staying at a fancy schmancy hotel, and running a freaking marathon! In 10 days! I will be running along the ocean. The ocean! For those of you who live by the sea, you have no idea what the ocean means to a land-locked person like me. And add a few palm trees, I think I am in paradise. I will be such a tourist! Can't wait!
I invited my son and about-to-bring-forth-child-daughter-in-law for lunch on Sunday. They will be here, barring unforseen labor and delivery. My son requested that I make sour cream burritos - what a great idea. Family, a Bronco game, and good food. It is nice to not be running 600,000,000 miles this weekend.
There is so much happiness in my heart tonight. I thank God with every fiber of my being for this.
