And tomorrow were off to Mankato for the 1/2 Marathon and 10K!

Thank God my work is done and not crazy. However getting ready personally at home is another story. I still need to do some light cleaning-I'm one of those people that has to leave a super clean house/so I come back to a clean house. Then I gotta finish laundry and pack. Plus, I always HATE cooking the night before I go outta town-cuz that leaves dirty dishes-so after work I'm meeting peeps for Flat Top! Then I gotta hit Target because its suppose to rain race day-70% chance-awesome! So were gonna pick up some cheepo ponchos so we can be dry when the race starts and then just toss them. I was gonna get an audio book cuz the drive to MN is BORING but I went to the downtown branch forgetting its all tore up and that they don't have any. Lakeview is open until 9pm so hopefully I can swing in there tonight.

Spectators-still no word on my nephew and rents-told my mom that she just needs to call the place. My cousin Andrea sent me a . My sister backed out, which I totally expected.

I pick up my rental tomorrow morning as soon as it opens at 7:30-8ish. The plan is to leave at 10a, check into the hotel, go to the expo for our packet pick up, then prob dinner at one of the pasta feeds they have for runners, hyvee for breakfast items and then back to the room to set out all our gear and GO TO SLEEP!

Play list is DONE! I used some of my fav tunes and RPM music along with suggestions from friends and I did a contest with listeners for a fee tshirt, here's my play list:

I'm starting with slower songs so I remember to pace myself.
Eminem-Sing for the Moment
Katy Perry-Teenage Dream
Corey Hart-Sunglasses at Night  I <3 the 80's
Katy Perry f Snoop Dogg-California Girls
Lady Gaga-Bad Romance gotta have the Gaga this is where I start to pick up the tempo

Bruised Water-from RPM 45
What Is Love-From RPM 47-Klaas Meets Haddaway
Smells Like Teen Spirit-from RPM 34-Warp Brothers remix

It's Not Over (and it will sooo not be over when I get to this song)-from the latest RPM release 48
Voodoo People-The Prodigy-from RPM 43
