just another few hours...

...and I'm through with the office for a few days.

I packed my bags, for the most part, last night. I act like I'm going to be gone three weeks. It's only five days. It's just so difficult to pack gear and three kinds of training shoes and training gear...and then racing gear...and with the temps being a bit cool in upstate NY right now, I have to bring sweats....then there's street clothes and flip flops....and toiletries and all the little 'just-in-case' kinda things! I pick up the rental car this afternoon and take a little loner road trip in the morning. I'm so pumped to explore new territory. Can't youi just feel the excitement?

Meanwhile, my legs are trashed. My run last night just sucked. And I think the heat index with humidity was somewhere in the 90s. Either that, or I have some kind of sweat abnormality. I couldn't stretch because my legs keps slipping out of my grip. It looked like I'd just jumped in a pool. It just didn't smell like it.

I'm starving too. I just told Judi that I could eat three sushi rolls and a bucket of pita chips (weird combo, i know, but those are a few of my fave things from Whole Foods, which is where i'm headed in about 3 mins) right now. The monster in my belly is screaming for food. And he's belching up that nasty acid and landing it right on the back of my throat just to let me know.

I've got the music collection ready to go and I'm off to grab some snacks for the road.

I'll be sure to update, with pictures, from the road.

Nice! I was getting excited just thinking about packing for a race/long weekend! Good luck!

Welcome to the world of crappy high heat index - I totally feel your pain. When it's that high here (it was 103 for a whole week!) it feels like you're running through soup and feel like CRAP the rest of the day. Ugh.
