Then I injured my back and decided I wouldn't do it. Then my back was feeling better, and all week I was waffling about doing the race. I was planning a 3 or 4 mile run for Saturday anyway, but the weather was supposed to be cold....what should I do - I sent out a few last ditch efforts to get someone to do it with me - but no takers. I just decided, I'm going to do it. So last night after work I headed to packet pickup to sign up for the race. I knew I would be doing it solo, but that was ok, I'm a big girl!
Packet pickup was in an unfinished office in an office complex with NO LIGHTS. The only lights were from the hallway - no temporary lighting - just the "nightlight" from the hall. It was weird. And packet pickup - well they handed you an envelope with your chip, bib, and some race flyers - that was it - no goodies - no bag - just an envelope. And the t-shirt - well since I waited to the last minute they were out - but the good news is they were ordering more and I should have it in 7 to 10 days. I was seriously thinking about backing out at that point - if I wasn't going to get the t-shirt what was the point :) So I headed home and hoped the forecast for tomorrow would be wrong.
