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. :)


More stuff I’m packing:


I like being prepared!!


Also, check this out- I got a 94% on my Food Safety Exam!!! Woot woot! :D


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!


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!

So awesome!! I’m just heading to work a 12.5 hour shift, so I hope when I come home that there is a new post about the race:)


Angela (Oh She Glows) June 14, 2009 at 6:32 am

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!).

Okay I just watched your video and I laughed out loud when you said “about” … to me it sounded like it should but I know those Yanks will say something LOL


Melissa June 14, 2009 at 9:39 am

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!

Good luck! I love the outfit and video. You’ll do great!

Congratulations on a great race! WOW – 19th place is so awesome. I cannot wait to read parts 2 and 3 of your day! Your outfit looked great!


K June 14, 2009 at 11:35 pm

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


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.


Rina Kremer August 1, 2009 at 9:52 pm

What is the Food Safety Certificate for?


Eliana >^..^ November 16, 2009 at 7:37 pm

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)
