How are you doing?

I don't even know how to answer that one. I am excited about my 5K tomorrow and I am scared. Will I finish? Will I finish last? Will I even wake up in time for the race? All these questions and more. Where do I pin my number, on the front or the back? Do I carry a water bottle? Do I want my IPod? I don't know, I don't know, I don't know? Encino, Encino with long hair....oh wait that was My Big Fat Greek Wedding, not My Big Fat Self Running. LOL

I think I am over prepared. I don't want to look like a newbie but I will probably stand out. You know the people who try to look cool by trying to look like they are not trying to look cool? Yeah that will be me. A friend of mine is running in the 5K. Yeah, she did the Boston Marathon. She said when she finishes, she will come back and run with me. Well I didn't want her to run an additional 6K, so I told her to grab something eat, cool down, chat with my husband and her husband then come meet me. I should be halfway done by then.

I should be sleeping but I am too jazzed up. I hope it rains tomorrow morning instead of just waiting to rain. That would mean hot, muggy air. Just let the water fall and relieve us during our run. My understanding is that it is all on streets through NASA and between buildings, which means we won't feel the breeze from the nearby lake. Darn.

Some weight watcher buddies are running this weekend. Here is a shout out to Kris, Christina, Lisa and Valerie. You go girls. Show the rest of the runners what we are made of!!!! Woo Woo woo!!!


  1. You go girl. Enjoy yourself! Let us know how it goes.

  2. Can't wait to hear how you did!!! Thanks for the shout out!!
