The anticipation is building, I'm really starting to get amped for my race on Sunday. Today I picked up my race packet for Sunday's run....got the bib number, timing chip, a goody bag with only one goody (not so good tasting Clif Shot Bloks)...I really like getting the free stay-put pony tail holders, but no luck this time. I did get a really kick ass race shirt, and that makes up for the poor goody bag.
So now I'm worrying about what to wear to race in. I had picked out some blue Adidas shorts and a complimentary shirt...but I really like the race shirt too (part of me doesn't like wearing something most of the others will be wearing though).
My main stress right now though is my body has been threatening to start "that time of the month" all week...and here it is 2 1/2 days before the race and still nothing. My biggest fear is that it starts the day of the race...the first day is the worst! I am praying to start tomorrow, so then I'll be on day 3 by the race- I can handle that. What do real racers do? Well, they probably have too low of body fat and have amenorhia - so no worries about that. I know some people take the pill to control when they get their periods, but the pill gives me migraines so that isn't an option. HELP!
