It's Race Day!

I woke up this morning and jumped out of bed and shouted , It's Race Day!"  Tom looked at me cross eyed, but after nearly 40 years of marriage, not much I do surprises him.  This race day is special because it is an evening race and it is with a huge group of my Without Limits teammates.

My outfit is set, but most of the girls will be in frilly pink tutus.  Having worn a tutu just twice for races, it is really not my thing.  And besides, the younger girls will look far better in the tutus than this old lady runner.  However, not wearing a tutu did not stop me from putting together a race outfit that shows off my team pride.  The pink tank tops were in short supply, but I was excited to get the last one in size small.
Race shirt and race day outfit!
My goals for the race are to have fun and hopefully win an age group award.  I have no idea how my calf will do, so it may not be possible to run fast.  But it will be a great evening regardless of my race time!

Now I have to wait all day for the Wilma Dash.  It is a female race in downtown Wilmington and at packet pickup they gave us not one, but two drink tickets.  Yes, there is another reason I am excited about the race.  We have a huge party at the convention center afterwards.  It is going to be fun with our team of over 50 runners!  Did I mention that our team also won a team award before the race for the most runners?  We have a party at the brewery in downtown Wilmington to look forward to!

  3. On a Thursday night? That's interesting. I'm not one for tutus either. I wore one once. I don't need to repeat it. Your outfit is cute! Have fun!
