Getting in a little more descent fuel before I start clogging my arteries with rest stop grub. Hardees, I love you.

Highlight of my running day yesterday was seeing these bad boys come in the mail. Pro compression socks. Review to come after I try them out in my race.
|What the stars!|
And I'm feeling double lucky that this is my race travel partner.

We'll miss the brothers.

On my packing list was a load of race-day energy tricks. Not sure which ones I will actually use. The Steaz on the left is an unknown, but I impulse bought it at the health food store. Crystal Light Energy definitely packs a powerful caffeine punch, and I would use it or the Steaz pre-race to wake up. The GU will go in my shorts in case I don't like the options at the aid stations. They have stations at every mile in this race. And potties at every station. I might never leave.

The weather is supposed to be a hot tamale 78 degrees. In the suitcase, top left is what I want to wear to the race (Nike skirt and shirt). Bottom left is all of the just-in-cases.
