"Well behaved women seldom make history." - Laurel Thatcher Ulrich
There were long lines everywhere! It took me 45 minutes to get my iPod Nano engraved and a few times, I thought about ditching the line all together. But somehow, I stuck with it. I didn't even bother with the photo booth or the gait analysis... or the mini manicure stations! There were long lines there, too. I did stop by the Jamba Juice Cheer Stations to say hello to my friend and pick up my official Jamba shirt! So this is what I'm planning on wearing tomorrow.
Duane and I also braved our way over to Dolores Park for the Red Bull Soap Box Derby... There must have been several thousand people there. It was a zoo! And the soap box cars that were in the competition were pretty neat.
Some guy selling homemade tamales on the street with a ghetto sign. Hehe.
After we finished our ginormous burritos that we picked up on the way, we head back home. I am so pooped right now! Last night, we stayed out until 3am celebrating a birthday with friends and today, we're driving down to Santa Cruz to celebrate yet another birthday. I'm hoping to be in bed by 11pm tonight. And I sincerely hope I can sleep either way during the drive, since Santa Cruz is at least an hour away from us. (The worst part of it all is that I did NOT drink at all last night and won't be drinking tonight, either. I try to stay away from all forms of alcohol the week of any race but it's SO hard! Do most of you follow this religiously? I have to admit, there are some days when I run with hangover, it feels so good. Like a good detox! But then, the longest run I've ever gone with a hang over is 12 miles... I am SO drinking tomorrow night!!)
I am excited about the race tomorrow!!
