Yes, it is lime green and may be a bit much but I don't care. I am a member of the "finisher" club and I will be wearing my shirt with pride. :) When walking to work this morning and remembering the course, I got a little choked up. I guess this will always be an emotional time for me, until I'm able to tackle and finish the Chicago Marathon. In the mean time, I'm suuuper pumped to cheer on my running friends as they tackle this beast of a distance!
Do you ever get emotional thinking about a certain race? If you live in Chicago, are you sporting your marathon gear this week?
My guest bedroom has been completely taken over by running gear. Outfits and necessities are laid out for both Saturday and Sunday.
Thankfully the guest bedroom is rarely used so I can lay out all my running stuff and not feel guilty about it! :)
So, my strategy for the 5k on Saturday is to take the first mile easy-ish, and get progressively faster so my last mile is faster than my first (this rarely happens for me, so that is what I'm going to work towards). Pepper and Toph may be there to cheer us on! Yahooo!!!
