Less than 24 hours to go time!

1 down 5 to go...

Almost exactly 24 hours from now this will be the view for all except for Runner 2 (his view will be from the vantage point of that bozo running down the hill.  Food has been bought and prepped (complete with Quinoa!), clothes packed, van iPod music loaded and even a few minor internal freak outs have been held back.  I even set my alarm clock this morning for the 3am wakeup call which feels like sleeping in compared to last year’s 2am wakeup.  Some of my stats:

  • 40 Bananas Packed
  • 5 Gallons of Water
  • 6 GU/gels
  • 6 powerbars
  • 1 serving of Quinoa, Rice-a-Roni, Spaghetti/Spinach Casserole respectively
  • 3 servings of Chez Boy-ar-dee Cheese Ravioli
  • Trail mix
  • 4 running shirts
  • 3 running shorts
  • 6 pairs of running socks
  • 2 pairs of running shoes
  • 1 pair of crocs and lounge socks
  • 3 blinking lights a headlamp and a maglite
  • Garmin GPS watch/heart rate monitor
  • Twitterable device
  • 4 empty bags for wet clothes
  • 1 old newspaper for wet shoes
  • Baby Powder (aahhh feel the freshness!)
  • Baby Wipes (almost as good as a shower!)

That’s likely only the half of it.  Phone chain will be in place early AM.  Van leaves uptown Charlotte no later than 4:15 with target race arrival at 6:45.  Early bedtime ahead – good luck all!
