Finally Friday!

I'm so glad that it's Friday! My weekend has started and I am thankful for that! It has been a busy week at work and I'm definitely looking forward to the weekend. I don't have major plans, but I have some fun planned.  This will actually be a short post because of that fun... I'm getting ready for a race that I have early tomorrow morning. I have more than a few things to get done!

I'm pretty excited about my workout tonight... I'm not loving the weather so I am not running outside. I'm also not running on the treadmill. My hotel has an elliptical, which I plan to take advantage of. I thought about taking TF and my laptop but I don't want to drag everything along. The elliptical is definitely my choice over that anyway.

Tomorrow I have a race! My friend and I are running for Boston and have some fun, jazzed up running outfits to wear. Races are so much more fun with fun outfits.

I have to admit I'm a little nervous about the race. It's a five miler which is a distance I am comfortable with. Actually it's around the distance I prefer... So far 10Ks are my favorite (6.2 miles). They're long enough but not too long. I'm not nervous about the distance though. I'm nervous because it's not a very large one. Whenever I'm in a smaller race I worry about being the slowest runner and coming in last. I don't know why but I just can't stand the thought of being last. I really need to get over that. It might do me good to come in last....I just cringed as I wrote that. I've said it before... I'm just comfortable being somewhere in the middle. It's my happy race place!

The fear of being last... That's a new one I need to get over!

Well I suppose that's about it...I need to go make an early dinner and finish packing before I leave. I want to stop by the mall if I have time, and need to pick of a gift for a baby shower....And I really want to be sure I have some time saved for that elliptical! If I'm down that way by 7 and have time to stop by the mall, I'll be happy. I can handle being at the hotel to hit the elliptical by 8. I'll be happy with just half an hour!

I'll post a race report as soon as I can - if not tomorrow, then definitely on Monday!

Have a fabulous weekend!!
