And for those that follow along, particularly those of you who put these crazy rituals into my head, the pre-race Friday haircut has been completed. The custom WBM playlist has been loaded (see below). The new pair of lucky socks has been purchased (left in package until Sunday morning). The gels and bio-freeze have been packed. And the Running With Horses race shirt has been selected.
As you can tell, I'm pretty amped up for this trip. Much like having Christy and my brother with me on past runs, this will be the first time we make a family weekend out of it. It will be nice to spend most of the time with the girls and explore a little North Carolina shoreline. Our first trip to Wilmington.
There are a few others of you that will be there. I hope you have a great run and have a good time. See you at the starting line.
