Friday morning, eleven women and myself will start the journey from Saratoga Springs to Lake Placid. We are running the Ragnar Adirondack Relay. I cannot wait. I am anticipating this relay so much I started packing over the weekend. Big mistake! I need that running gear prior to leaving. Oops!
I am runner six. I will run three legs of the relay and these will total just less than 22 miles in just over 24 hours. I am taking this in stride as I am eight weeks out from my goal race for the fall – the Anthem Richmond Marathon. 22 miles would equal my 16 mile long run and one 6 mile run from earlier in the week. It’s all going to fit right into the plan.
My biggest problem with packing is sports bras. I truly need new ones. On top of that, I need more than two. Truthfully, keeping on a damp sports bra tends to make me colder than even cold weather. I am going to go out and do some last minute shopping either tonight or tomorrow morning. On the big list are many different things but here is a partial list for you all to peruse. Tell me what I’m missing.
- Bagels (for both vans)
- Clif Bars from Weis (discovered/found iced gingerbread and spiced pumpkin pie yesterday)
- sports bras
- a vest (mine is not approved as far as I can tell)
This weekend is a homecoming of sorts for me. I haven’t really spent any time in Lake Placid since the 1980 Winter Games – that means 33 years since I’ve been there. Photos will be coming next week. If you want to follow along on the relay, follow me on Twitter and on Instagram.
