I’d tell you that I may turn into a pumpkin.
Yes, yesterday, I had pumpkin oatmeal with pumpkin spice tea for breakfast. Mid morning for a snack, I had pumpkin poptarts. Then for lunch I had a pumpkin bagel and pumpkin yogurt. (For dinner – soup and salad – no pumpkin but I was tempted.) Finally at mah jongg, there was pumpkin yogurt covered pretzels and pumpkin cookies. Of course, I had to taste them.
I’d tell you that I’m not worried about my upcoming half marathon itself (RNR Brooklyn) but I am worried about the logistics.
I’m taking the bus to NYC and arrive at 9:15 am. I rented a room in an apartment thru AirBnP. It’s my first time doing so but hotels were so expensive. I can’t check in until 2 pm so I can check my bag in Macys and hang out in the city
OR I can take the subway to Brooklyn and go to the expo and then go to my apt.
I am leaning toward waiting til after 2 pm so I can get rid of my bag before going to the expo.
But my real worry is getting to the start in the morning. I have to take 3 subways or a bus and one subway. And who knows if they run that early or will be on time. Well, at least, I’m in corral 10 (in case I’m late.)
And bag check. It’s not near the corrals but since it’ll be cold before the race & I’ll be sweaty when I’m done, I’ll want to bring extra clothes… and check them… I think.
Plus I’ll have to beg for a late check out…I’m not sure when I’ll be done with the race and I think check out is 11 am…No way I’ll be ready!!
I’d tell you that I am an overpacker. It’s ok when you fly or drive but when you have to carry your bag on a bus & subway…
Nope, I am going to pack light!!!!
Just the minimum…my race stuff and not much more.
Hope you enjoyed your morning coffee or tea because by the time you read this, you’ll be having dinner.
Better late than never.
Happy Running! Hope you enjoyed your day!
