I'm ready to get the weekend started.
Hitting the road this afternoon to drive to Santa Ynez for a nice visit with a girlfriend then off to the Grandparents house.
I wouldn't call this week a success on the health front. I did manage to not eat like a banshee; I probably didn't eat enough. I was forced to eat a lot of protein bars like Luna Bars or other "FAKE" food. It gave me protein, but I really hate eating fake food. I feel so much better when I am eating cleaner. I did manage to rack up extra calories on the wine. So should be for an interesting race on Saturday.
Also, I had to wear heals and be on my feet for about 10-12 hours each day during this event. My feet are in serious peril.
I am hoping to rest up (mentally and physically) on Friday and get ready.
13.1 hilly hell, here I come. Ready or not!

You can do this and you are going to rock it!!!
You are going to kick ass chica, you know it ;-)
The best fake food I've found is the Macrobar - Granola Delight flavour. It's the perfect balance of carb/fat/protein I've found so far for my nutritional goals.
Good luck and enjoy the trip.
best of luck w/ your half! I'm starting to freak about mine, too.
also, whenever you want to have our martini, cheese, wine duel, let me know. Perhaps after the Portland marathon :) (hee - I just typed marathong - which might be an entirely different event.)
You've got this, fo sho!
Good luck!! You'll do great.
Sorry about the heels. That sucks!
Hill training...Heel training...practically the same thing.
...you're gonna rock those hills!!
You are going to rock it! Be proud of yourself for even entering the race and running it -- the rest is just gravy.
I hate fake food too. I'd much rather have the real deal, even if it's full-fat cheese, etc.
One day I was really torn with what's the best decision-- an IN-N-OUT burger served protein style (lettuce wrap with no sauce and no cheese) or a Snickers Marathon bar. I chose the burger. Of course it was awesome.
GOOD LUCK this weekend!!
You will rock it! Can't wait to hear all about it!
I'm pretty sure you will do great - all those fake foods are just storing energy to rock out those hills.
GOOD LUCK!!! you will do awesome! make sure to drink some yummy wine at the end too :)
Have a wonderful time. Good luck, I know you will do great. Enjoy all the post race vino!
Good luck and have fun this weekend!! You're going to do great. :)
You are going to have an awsome weekend. Have fun on the run and just take it one hill at a time. You are going to do great.
Woohoo!!!!!! have fun!!
Haha you CAN do it. Seriously. The concious mind can only hold one thought at a time, make it a positive one. :)
I'll be looking for a race report.
Piece of Cake! You'll rock it.
Good luck on your race!
It's in the bag, looking forward to the report!
YOU CAN DO IT---have FUN while you do!
Have a GREAT time (and running time too!!)
Good luck with your run..hills and all!
You can do it! One week of poor nutrition and heel wearing won't undo all your hard work!
Good luck in the race! I bet you do great being all wine fueled and all.
good luck - i'm sure you'll do awesome! i hate fake food too. i am excited to buy new "bars" but then never get around to eating them.
Amen to the eating clean! But poor feet:(
It's in the bag!!! Good luck out there on the course, and look down while running uphill, may help if you don't already do this. :-)
Good luck! Can't wait to read your race report! :)
I am anxious to hear about your half! I've posted my report.
I think I might have to do the Portland marathon this year - the finish line feeling was just too awesome.
