Prep for Insanity

I went downtown today and picked up my number for the impending Route 66 Marathon. I am not subjecting myself to the full torture but only 50% of the torture! I'll be running a 13.1 mile half-marathon on Sunday! I bought a couple of items to make my time a little easier. I bought Body Glide, which is less naughty than some of you may be thinking. I also got 4 pairs of Balega socks. Not that I plan on using all four but at least one pair for sure, and it was buy 3 get 1 free. So, with my tech shirt, running dri-shorts, specially fitted running shoes, synthetic running socks, red bandanna, and race bib number 5315...I will be sweating across the finish line in style and comfort, along with some sobbing probably.

Thanks bud! You've been a great encouragement this whole time. I've really enjoyed the company when we've been running. Don't think I could do it without you and the crew! See you at a jogging path near you!
