BAGS PACKED AND READY TO GO!
On the road again, this time to Louisville (that's pronounced Lou-a-ville), Kentucky, to run (ha ha!) in the Kentucky Derby Minimarathon. I'll be staying with Suzanne, a blogger I met last year when in Louisville for the Ironman. I've followed her path as she has attempted to qualify for Boston this year, then her subsequent injury, and now of all things, she's into bike racing! She's a great biker, probably better than she thinks. If she only learns to swim, watch out triathletes!
Anyway, I'll be leaving right after work, driving to Indianapolis with a friend from work, spending the night there, and then heading on down south to Kentucky Friday morning. The race is Saturday, and it looks like rain is predicted the whole weekend :(, but what can you do?
As usual, the dilemma for me is always what to bring. I wanted to pack as lightly as possible, since I was also bringing my bike and stuff, but I guess driving gives you a whole lot more options than flying on what to bring, and the best part there? No plastic bags or security checks! So I think I've got enough stuff with me for hot, cold, wet, biking, etc. It looks like I'm packed for a cross-country trip to the prairie never to return.
Not bringing a laptop this time. I figure the only time I will have for that would be tonight, so I probably won't be on e-mail much or at all. Wish me luck, and I'll see you at the finish line.
