Speaking of to do lists, I always have a list of things to check off before a race, especially an out of town one. Things like:
- Charge the iPod
- Charge the Garmin
- Figure out packet pick up time
- Determine race day outfit
However, one of the most important pre-race to do's, is to get a kick ass manicure.
Today, I did just that, getting these rocking hot pink nails. I don't wear make up or wear jewelery while I run, both annoy me, but I love to have some fun nails to show off when I don't need gloves over my hands for races. The ritual gets me psyched up, and helps me pick out fun race outfits to try and coordinate with the nails.
Oh, one more thing, also equally important on the POST race to do list, a pedicure! Anyone who has to see your feet that next week will thank you!
