Happy Friday! I’m relaying this weekend.

It’s Friday!  I’m excited for the weekend and have a new experience.  This year I was invited to join a Texas Independence Relay team and I’m really excited for the experience.

It’s 200 miles with my friends. We’re either going to love or hate each other by the time it’s all done! We have 11 people on our team and two drivers. Willie volunteered to drive on this little adventure and I’m so grateful for his support on this one! We start tomorrow morning at 9:28 am and will run from Gonzales, TX to the San Jacinto Monument! 200 freakin’ miles, 11 people, two vans and zero sleep! Doesn’t it sound like a good time?

TIR planning meeting! #runchat #running #runhappy
The most difficult thing for me is food! First off, I don’t want to put myself in a position where I’m eating junk! It’s hard for Willie and I because we don’t eat a lot of processed food or fast food! It’s just not going to be easy for us. I hope no one minds that we’ll both be toting our own cooler of food. I cooked us some food last night that won’t go terribly bad and I’ll prep us some oatmeal for the mornings and hope we can keep it cold enough.  Needlesstosay, we’ll be getting a lot of ice! I do feel like I have too much stuff, but I have to be prepared for this.

I’m excited to be doing something different and pushing myself out of my comfort zone!  This is supposed to be an amazing experience.  So please, follow me on twitter and instagram and like our team page on Facebook for updates throughout the weekend.  Here goes nothing…

What are your plans for the weekend?
