A week and two weeks...

It is beginning to set in... It is really happening.  The waiting is almost over.  Am I ready?  Can I do this?  Am I nuts?  Yes yes and yes!!  I leave bright and early on Wednesday (that's actually a lie--it will be pitch black even after the plane takes off!) for Chicago.  I am almost packed--just need to finalize a few ensemble choices.  Then I hope to run the race of my life Sunday.  As of yet the weather is holding at the perfect temperatures. I try not to stress too much about the weather, however, it is WAY out of my control.  I fly back to Montana on Wednesday and then the very next morning I hop on another flight to San Francisco.  This is where it gets very EXCITING.  Yes--psyched for Chicago and I love going there etc.  But this trip to San Francisco is the trip of a lifetime for me.  It is ala NIKE.  I am going to a place I have never been and not at my expense.  They have been providing me with gear, support, an awesome training plan via Marie Purvis (who is also running Chicago and I can't wait to meet!).  All of this has been leading up to this trip.  We are being put up in a great hotel and I will finally meet my #SistersInNike.  

Today I put my sewing machine to use.  It was so fun and I have been missing it. 

I ordered this custom ribbon and it was supposed to be grosgrain, but its not and the printing is not of the best quality.  So I bought some Tiffany Blue ribbon in honor of the necklace we receive and the awesome Lunarglides that Nike has manufactured on behalf of this event.

I made these for all the girls, one for Marie, three for @Nikewomen, and one for one of the ambassador's friend's that will be at our hotel too.  I hope I haven't forgotten anyone...

THis will probably be my last post until after the events, depending upon the time I arrive back in montana (I will be in the state for about 12 hours!) on that wednesday.  Feel free to follow my journey via twitter: @turtlegirl00

Best of luck to everyone running Chicago and San Fran!!  And any other races happening! And safe travels to all!!
