Cherry Blossom coming right up

This weekend is the Cherry Blossom 10 miler.  If you have been reading my blog for awhile you will already know that this is my least favorite race ever!  I'm sure that after Sunday I will have a list of why I do not care for the Cherry Blossom race, but right now I am trying not to think about it.  I am just concentrating on the fact that I will be running with friends!  That is always fun!

I just heard, while driving home, that the weather is supposed to be in the 70's!  That sounds good!  I'm sure it won't be that warm in the morning, but always something to look forward to.  It was soo cold today and I was hoping that it wasn't going to be like this on Sunday.  I also hope that the weather is starting to warm up so that the cherry blossoms will be in full bloom this year.  Last year they had an early bloom so no blossoms left while we ran.  Afterwards we are heading to to get some french toast.  I think I may be addicted to french toast after a run.

I'm hoping that I sub 2:00 on Sunday..and if that doesn't happen I hope I feel good during the race.  This Tuesday when I was running at run club, my legs felt like they had lead in them.  At one point I didn't think I was really running.  I hope since that happened this week that on Sunday it will be smooth sailing.  I know usually with the excitement of race morning how can you have legs of lead?

Tomorrow I'm heading up to packet pickup to pick up everyone's bibs.  I'm hoping that it is not too busy.  Normally when you go on Saturday you can end up standing in line for hours to pick up the packet.  Hopefully a Friday pick up will help me love the Cherry Blossom race just a little bit.

I hope that you have such a great race Sunday that your opinion of this race changes. And, if not, at least you will be with friends and have the french toast to look forward to!!!
Good luck!
