Take a Deep Breath!!!


So I got the Race Kit yesterday ... all I need is to get the pants adjusted to length (I'll chop a lot of the felt off to lighten the load.)

The race strategy will be to run at least 3.5 k at 6:11 min/k or 9:54 min /mi. Then to use Jill's words, "Finish Strong!".

The Bib is cool, is says "Santa Andrew" on it and the race chip for my shoe is a throw-away with a Santa face on it!

There are 2709 people registered for the race so far!

This is greatness... cannot wait to see race photos.

Jill said...

One more tip: Cut that felt to shorts-length - less wind drag.

Oh and do NOT get sucked into the back of the pack. Positioning is key - remember Just elbow all other 2708 people as you jockey for front row spot.

Have a blast!! Cannot WAIT to hear how it goes.

We use the "finish strong" often back at home too. We say run happy and finish strong. And I know for sure that you will do just that and more =) Go get 'em Santa Andrew =)
