I'm So Excited (but I didn't add that song to my playlist)

I have crazy butterflies today. I am so excited for the blogger/runner meet-up tonight. And I am more excited for this race than I have been about a race in a long time. I don't know if it's because I ran it last year and finally broke two hours on a half or if it's because I know so many people running, but I can hardly contain myself. That is why I am blogging instead of napping. I knew it was pointless to try and sleep when all I would do is waste time thinking about tomorrow.

As far as tomorrow goes, I already picked up my packet and have my race day outfit selected. I'll be sporting a pink shirt, just as an FYI. My goal is a PR, which means faster than 1:57:18. The course is downhill and they changed it just a little from last year so there isn't an uphill during the last mile this time. I feel pretty good about it. Oh, and I'd like to not puke after I finish, but that isn't exactly a goal.

I'm excited to run with the help of some new tunes too, thanks to all of you. Here's what I added to my playlist:

  • Enter Sandman - Metallica

  • River Deep, Mountain High - Glee

  • Rolling in the Deep - Adele

  • More - Usher

  • Pokerface - Lady Gaga

  • Magic - B.o.B

  • Walk - Foo Fighters

  • Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO

  • Ray of Light - Madonna

  • Spotlight - MuteMath

  • The Middle - Jimmy Eat World

  • Man on the Moon - MJ*

  • Remember the Name - Fort Minor*

  • Pressure - Billy Joel*

  • Big Girls Are Best - U2*

  • Elevation - U2*

  • When Love Comes to Town - U2*

  • Desire - U2*

(* Songs I already owned)

Good luck to all the Utah Valley Half and Full Marathon bloggers/runners out there!!
