Ready for #10!

So I'm running my 10th half marathon tomorrow! I'm excited! It's been an awesome summer of training some awesome ladies...my Sole2Soul Sisters! I'm so proud of each and every one of them and can't wait to see their faces tomorrow after they finish their 1st half marathon!!!

But...I did something stupid this week. I went with my friend to her personal training session and the trainer worked me out pretty hard. Of course at the time I didn't think it would be a big deal. This happened on Wednesday. Getting out of the bed on Thursday morning was quite the sight! I almost fell trying to stand up! Seriously! My calves were killing me! They loosened up some so I went ahead and went for my run. By that night my legs were hurting so bad! And yesterday was awful!!! I had to sub in a kindergarten class and it was awful when I sat on the carpet with them to play a game and had to get back up...OUCH!!! My son Hayden asked me why I was walking like a grandma! Yeah thanks son! Today my legs are feeling a little better...they are still super tight but I'm hoping by tomorrow they will be feeling close to normal. Fingers crossed!

Me and the boys headed out this afternoon to the race expo and packet pickup. It was pouring down rain and the expo was outside so there weren't a lot of people hanging around shopping. This is the first year for this race...there's only around 300 people registered so the expo wasn't anything exciting. We grabbed my number, shirt, and swag bag. We stopped and talked to a few of the booths and then we were on our way.

I'm hoping this number is a good one! :-)

We stopped to take a quick picture in front of the water during a slack in the rain! Aren't my boys just too cute??? :-)

Then we stopped by our local running store so I could pick up one of these:

Why do I need a visor tomorrow? Because don't I normally wear a cute headband? Yes! But tomorrow's forecast looks like this: 

So yeah...I'm pretty sure I'm going to get rained on at some point during tomorrow's race. It was bound to happen...so far ALL of my races the weather has been gorgeous. 

But I'm still gonna have fun!!!

I'm ready!!!

QOTD: Any tips for me for running in the rain?
