Here I am, in Utica… Boilermaker bound! We’ve been hanging all day here in Utica figuring out the layout and where to go before and after the race. I got my packet, and my goody bag.
My friend, Elaine is with me and we are having a fun time. She drove us, and we are camping out tomorrow after the race in Verona Beach, hanging all day. I’m really looking forward to it. Love her.
Hanging by the pool after our trip to the expo!
Here’s the bondi I’ll be wearing tomorrow in the race that I picked up this afternoon… Look for me!
I bought THREE bondi bands…!
As soon as I received my race bib today, I was totally nervous, and excited, and my chest w tightened! In a good way though but wow, and eeeeeek! This is the first race I will be without Rick which, I want him here!!! He’s got his own race going on tomorrow..the Pine Bush triathlon but still!
Anyway, I’m all set and ready to roll.
I can’t believe how big this race is… and surprisingly enough, I ran into a friend from home at packet pick-up! But what really blows my mind is that there will be 14,000 runners and like 40,000 people lining up all along the course to cheer the runners on!!
