Two Days Till Blue Ridge: Road Trip

Thursday, April 16, 2015

It seems like yesterday I was packing my car and heading out to make this very same journey. Last year, however, I was en-route to run the half. It amazes me how far I've come.

At one time, running the the Blue Ridge Marathon was a joke and a dream. A joke because it seemed impossible and a dream because I secretly wanted to run it even though I'd laugh it off and deny everything.

Despite that, here I am with a car loaded with enough clothing and gear for a month of races, a cooler with my standard pre-race food (gluten free sweet potato protein pancakes,) and ample amounts of PlowOn gum.

Now I'm off to go grab the other half of this crazy adventure, Cindy. Misery most certainly loves company.

Wish us luck!
