In less than 48 hours I will be toeing the line at my second marathon. I am so excited to spend a weekend away with these lovely ladies.

I am happy to report that my hip is doing much better. I'd say it is at least at 95%. I don't have any discomfort when walking and only feel a little niggle if I think about it. With two more days of rest I'm hoping to go in close to 100%. Phew, that was a close one.
And today is one of my favorite days of the year - my birthday! I think this is kind of amusing now since we don't have parties or anything. More often than not, I purchase my own present. No surprises here. That tends to happen when you are in charge of the checkbook. Yesterday I headed to Maine Running Company to pick up some Shot Bloks and Body Glide and couldn't resist picking up this Nathan fuel belt. I made sure to thank my husband for my present when he got home.
It matches my Mizuno Wave Sayonaras perfectly! I'm going to break a rule of racing by wearing it for the first time on Sunday, but at least I can opt to get rid of it when we go through a relay exchange if it annoys me. I'm thinking it will be fine, but does anyone else use this belt?
My race outfit is finally complete.

I might breaking that don't wear anything new of race day again because while I like my tank, I really want to pick up a Crow Athletics tank at the expo. I hope they save me one.
This is my first race as a member and it would just look badass with my skull Spandits!
