Race Prep

Over here, I'm anxiously gearing up for my "big" race tomorrow. I'm pretty excited, but also a little nervous--eek! So I'm psyching myself up with two new purchases from my fave little boutique a.k.a. Target. Cute new running top:

Love. It's pink and has a little vent in the back. Sweet!

New deodorant! I know I'm a dork, but I took one whiff of this, and thought "Wow, inspiration!" Awesome. Now I have some perspiration inspiration :) How silly.

Thanks to everyone who suggested some music to pump me up while I'm racing. So far my playlist includes:
  • Cocaine/Eric Clapton
  • Kids/MGMT
  • Black Betty/Ram Jam
  • Going On/Gnarls Barkley
  • Jump rope/Blue October
  • Gone Gone Gone/Robert Plant and Alison Kraus
  • Get Well Cards/Conor Oberst
  • 21 Guns/Green Day
  • It's a Great Day To Be Alive/Travis Tritt
  • Gun Powder and Lead/Miranda Lambert
  • Ever Fallen in Love/Pete Yorn
  • Story of My Life/Social Distortion
  • Boom Boom Pow/Black Eyed Peas
  • Sex on Fire/Kings of Leon
  • Walk Away/Dropkick Murphys
  • Amber/311
  • Bathwater/No Doubt
  • 99 Red Balloons/Goldfinger
  • some other randomness from my country collection, Social D, BEP, No Doubt....and and my secret weapon....Ice cream and Cake by Buckwheat Boyz! You know this song--it's the semi-obnoxious tune from the Baskin Robbins commercials--helps remind me what I'm running for. Ice cream and cake! Whoo hoo!
Wish me luck lovies! xoxo, E
