I am READY. READY to Rock and roll.
1. Good JAMS - Yes, thank you for all the ideas on songs. I also got some great ones on facebook and I am ready to Jam it Out (or Punch someone in the face with some of these screamers). But either way, I am READY.
2. GEAR - I can't tell you enough how much I love all my running gear. I started training in January, and so the Colorado winter and spring gave me some COLD runs. But I loaded up all the best Under Armour COLDgear, and I became ready for anything Mother Nature sends my way. Good news, is Sunday will be about 35 degrees when we begin (at 6AM) and 65 when we finish. Thank you Kathy Sabine, because that's the best running forecast I could ask for.
4. Nike iPod Sport Kit - This may not be as accurate as a GPS device, but there's nothing better than Lance Armstrong coming on and saying, "Congratulations, you just completed your longest run yet. You Rock Kat!!" (Ok, he doesn't say that I Rock, but I know he's thinking it.....I love you Lance)
5. The Unfortunate Poise - that's right, I have had an encounter with Poise Pads once before. And little did I know that they would some day be used. But leave it up to mother nature and the miracle of child birth to leave me with very little control of my bladder. But the good news...I have already finished one race with completely wetting my pants as I crossed the finish line (yes, this is sadly true) and so I can slap a smile on my face if it were to happen for the Big One. But Just In Case... I added the Pad, and picked up on a trick of pouring water all over myself if it should happen again. Damn you Poise. Damn you.
So even though I leave it on that very TMI (Too Much Information) note, I will have to say (because I have to say to myself yet again), I am READY. I am READY to run 26.2 miles. I am READY to Rock It Like a Hurricane.
Alright everyone...in SIX days I am running a marathon. (My second marathon....first post-baby marathon), and I am in need of some new JAMS to listen to and get me through those 26.2 miles.
So give me your ideas. What songs keep you moving? What songs get you all pumped up and ready to go?? I seriously like everything from ACDC to Run DMC to Britney. Here's a few from my playlist just to give you an idea of my randomness:
