Jeff’s Post – Strip at Night!
Tamara and I are three days away from the Rock and Roll Las Vegas 1/2 Marathon. I’m excited that we will finally be running a race together again. Tamara has been chasing me around for the last few months while I was getting my marathon fix so it will be nice to have us at the starting line together once again. I already know how the first 3 or 4 miles will go – Tamara will be darting in and out of runner traffic like the frog in the frogger game. I love how she starts races (I also remember telling her at the VA Beach 1/2 that she was “killing me” with all of the darting back and forth) but deep down I enjoy it! This will be the first night race I have ever done (and I live on the East Coast so it will also be about my bed time) so I’m still trying to think through the whole eating/sleeping thing. I’m not 100% sure how my body will react since I do all my running in the am but this is my last major race of the year and I’m going to push it a bit. If anyone has advice on night racing please share!
6 strong treadmill miles this morning. I plan on another 3 miles tomorrow and then will be off until the race.
