Hello friends, it’s Friday and I’m blogging via iPhone in Nashville!! Can I get a woot woot?! I’ve be training relentlessly for 16 weeks for THIS weekend. I started posting #QuickFitTip Fridays, but I was just too excited about the Friday Five link-up hosted by Courtney, Cynthia, and Mar this week cause it’s about RACE day which happens to be tomorrow for me. Complete with rain, hills, 50,000 tangets, hills, and thunderstorm warnings in the forecast. And I chose this race to try and BQ?! Awesome. Bring it.
Anyway y’all should def check out the Friday Five rules and future topics HERE! The BEST way to meet new fabulous bloggers and join in on the fun weekly convo.
5 Things I always do the morning of Race Day:
1.) Drink a good cup (and a half) of hot, strong, black coffee and wait for the manic to happen. I love my coffee every morning. I need it…I mean c’mon. You all know what you have to do before you start off running..heaven help if there’s no coffee. Or this guy resembles my face:
2.) I eat a cinnamon raisin bagel, drink NUUN, and pee about 10,000x.
3.) A long hot shower to wake up.
4.) Pray. I usually do this as I’m getting ready but also have a special pre-race prayer for all those I love.
5.) Short jog, dynamic warm-up, and run my heart out!!
So that’s my basic, boring runner routine. 🙂

~What do you do race morning? Any unique rituals?!~
blessed and beautiful running.
