Prepping for the Turkey Trot

So, the big Turkey Trot is in two days and I'm already starting to get nervous!  Craziness!  Normally I get all sweaty hands kinds of nervous when in the starting line but I guess not this time. 

Since this weekend had lots of surprises, see yesterdays post, I didn't get my last run in on Sunday, which I'm ok with.  I ran over 4 miles three times and I felt good and on each run I knew and felt like I could go the rest to hit 5 miles.  I think I'll be fine.  I would have liked to get another run in but I knew I didn't want to do it Monday night because I really want to be rested up before Thursday and have really good fresh legs. 

What I'm doing now for prepping for my race is really hydrating myself, lots of water!  I'm also stretching a lot this week and wearing my boot to help stretch out my feet, which I'm hoping will help prevent my feet from feeling heavy.  Gotta love those Achilles tendons! 

The weather is supposed to be perfect, a little chilly but great running weather!  Just the way I like it! 

I'm already stock piling lots of ice for me to dump into a nice ice bath afterwards so I am not limping around all day on Thanksgiving. 

It's gonna be a great race, I can feel it! 

I'm on top of the world right now and couldn't be happier with things in my life, and I just want to enjoy every step of that 5 mile run on Thursday! 

It's gonna be awesome!!!
