I have some of my race jewelry ready…

The Diamond ‘A’ Necklace was a graduation gift from my mom. :) And the blue stone necklace was the very first piece of jewelry Eric ever gave me- 9 and a 1/2 years ago!!! Both of these are very sentimental pieces. :)

I am also wearing some diamond stud earrings from my sister Kristi that were a graduation gift as well. :)

I put together a pre-race video for you all tonight. I had it done around 8:30pm, but of course it takes a gazillion hours to upload! Anyways, better late than never :D

Note: TURN up volume once I am on…it’s quite low!

 

Now click ‘continue’ to see my race outfit!! :) I am quite happy with how it turned out!

TA-DA!

You should all be proud for helping me achieve this amazing number on the back of my tank! (It is actually now up to $3,270 as I type this!!). Once I get the cheque from the race I am donating $200 of my profits to the charity.

Ok, I better finish getting things in order and get ready for bed!

NIGHT! I hope I can sleep tonight! ;)

Oh my gosh! This is the first time I’ve really been able to take the time to dig around your website and there is SO MUCH I want to say. I guess I’ll start by simply saying ‘thank you’ for developing this resource. You are entertaining and an absolute inspiration to me. I suppose using the word “guru” might scare you off, eh? At any rate, good luck on your race and my next stop will be to your bakery! I think I’m in the market for some yummy snacks!

Best,
Jen

Hey everyone! THANK YOU for your goodluck wishes!!

I got a whopping 5.5 hours of sleep last night- yippee! lol.
Im struggling with no appetite this morning (always happens to me early esp. with nerves). I need agreen tea (for the eneergy boost) and probably an Amazing Grass blend…then I’m sure I will have some carbs about 1.5 hours before the race (I’m packing it with me since we have to leave 5 hours before the race even begins!).

Hi! I just started reading your blog and I love it. There’s so much great diet/exercise/health info here! And I must say, I am a chronic overpacker too- always better to be over prepared than under prepared! Good luck at your race. Can’t wait to read about it!

What did you mean by donating $200 to the charity? I thought all of it was. Hehe Sorry to misunderstand!

Reply

Oh She Glows June 15, 2009 at 9:14 am

k- $200 is all of the profits that I made…should have been more but the race backed out on a bunch of bars they purchased from me.

It was so nice to hear your voice, you have such a lovely voice. ;o)

I will keep reading about your tips on how to prepare for you first race.

BTW, I want to raise money for our local Animal Control/Shelter–they are getting 200-300 animals a DAY and this year alone they have had to euthanized 28,000. It is so sad, they really need money for their spaying/neutering program. Any tips on how to raise SO MUCH MONEY? ;o)
