Ready, Set, Go

My race is tomorrow!  I am so excited I can hardly sit still.  I know it is going to be hard, but I'm just ready to do it and get it done.  Can't wait for the endorphins and adrenaline and all the fun with my crazy relay team.
Will be wearing this headlamp (and an equally dorky expression, no doubt)  for the midnight run.

This Sunday I started training for a different kind of run.  I was asked to be the president of the Relief Society at church.  Basically a full-time job.

Like running a Ragnar, being an RS President is not something I EVER thought I'd do.  But here I am.  At the starting line.  Hoping my muscles are strong enough.  Nervous and excited.  Ready to have fun with my new team.

The blog will undoubtedly suffer...but I promise to post along the way...

Wish me luck!!!

Congrats (or condolences?) on both counts. Though I have no doubts as to your abilities on both fronts. Way to go, sista. Can't wait to hear all about the race.

Rochelleht said...

Wow! That's crazy. Good luck on both. That's a good way to get to know your new ward, eh? ;-)

Run, Gabi, run!

A good luck! By the way, I hear oatmeal cookies packed with chocolate chips and pecans are a great energy food for relayers. I am totally being honest. If you are relaying, you deserve some cookies rather than nasty gel packets.
