Hey guys and Happy Friday!
After an amazing night of sleep last night, I woke up this morning and worked until 2. Clay’s been sick lately, so I’ve slept in the guest room/office some this week. Fortunately he’s feeling much better now and I didn’t catch whatever he had (a really bad cold), but unfortunately, I did not get the best sleep ever this week.
Nadine came over this afternoon and we headed to the Charleston Marathon expo downtown. I am running the half marathon and she is running the Shrimp and Grits 5K, her first (and hopefully first of many) 5Ks.
We got our shirts and bibs, took some pictures, looked around, but didn’t make any purchases. I actually love the race shirt and didn’t feel like I needed to buy another shirt there. My shirt is an XS, women’s cut, long sleeved, and actually fits. I can’t wait until after the race when I can wear it in public- because no one wants to be “that person” wearing the race shirt at the race. Yeah, like wearing your band’s shirt to the concert- just don’t do it.
The proceeds from the marathon, half-marathon, and 5k go to benefit art programs in schools, which is definitely a cause I’m passionate about since I was in band in high school- and my high school unfortunately no longer has a band. The expo was full of art from local schools and it was awesome. I bet those kids are super stoked to have their art showcased at the expo, and there will be bands, singers, and cheerleaders on the course tomorrow. Pretty exciting!
We also got some quality pre-race noms with pizza at YourPie. So delicious. Brick oven pizza is one of my favorite meals for the night before a big run or race.
Last thing- I’m in a contest for work, so I’m sporting my t-shirt along with my half marathon bib and my cupcake. Today, we had a Sweet celebration in the office to celebrate reaching client goals, complete with cookies and cupcakes. Since I work from home and unfortunately can’t partake in the goodies with my coworkers, Nadine and I got cupcakes and I took a picture with mine to enter in our company’s Sweet celebration contest.
