Whose pumped?!?! I’m pumped!!!!

I was counting down the minutes this afternoon until I was free for the weekend. I knew I had a long drive ahead of me and the sooner I got on the road the better.

I had to race home to grab Maddie and quickly ate a blueberry oikos with some fiber one.

The drive was as predicted – long and slow. At least I had Maddie to keep me company. πŸ˜‰ She had a ball jumping from one seat to the next in the traverse.

Once in Tampa my first mission was to pick up my race packet and swag for the weekend.

Derek and I were starved after sorting through our swag and were more than ready to begin carb loading for our races tomorrow morning. (Derek is running the 15k πŸ™‚ ) We headed to Bungalow – a new restaurant in South Tampa – for some good eats.

They were very spicy and very tasty. πŸ™‚

A pre-race meal would not be complete with out frozen yogurt.

Good Night!
