Spend Wednesday night out drinking for your brother’s birthday, and stay up way too late waking up totally dehydrated and in desperate need of caffeine!
Inhale massive amounts of processed sugars and carbs!
Continue to drink from the world’s largest bottle of prosecco.
Schedule your last 3 mile run for Thanksgiving day, which is nearly impossible to accomplish due to Numbers 1-3.
Spend the day before your race (aka Black Friday) on your feet shopping and waiting in hour long lines for really cute clothes!
Spend 48 straight hours talking non stop so that you have a scratchy throat and hoarse voice.
The night before the race, fill up on sweet potato pie by the forkful.
Then proceed onto a random-thrown-together dinner of leftovers including sleep-inducing turkey.
I would encourage you not to follow my lead with the worst race prep ever (goodbye PR), but feel free to borrow my prerace positive attitude knowing that I had an awesome 3 days (and got some really good Black Friday deals) and that no matter what happens tomorrow, I am so happy and thankful to be running 13.1 miles. Until then, I will be rehydrating and sipping tea with my legs up thinking warm thoughts before I wake up to the coldest day since last winter! Brrr!
