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!!
