A blog about my journey of training to run a 1/2 marathon with Team In Training and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and beyond.

So today is Countown Day 2. Only 2 days left until the race. I went and picked up my race packet today. AnD IT WAS INSANE. People everywhere. lines, lines, and more lines. It was extremely well organized. It was just so much stuff and people. But I got everything I needed: bib, shirt (s), shoe tag, timing chip, and jersey. I also bought a spypack, which is like this teeny tiny fanny pack that I can put all my sports beans and goos in. I also got a tee that I fell in love with that says "13.1 because I'm only half crazy" and a 13.1 sticker for my car if I finish in a respectable time.  I have been carbloading with pasta and chicken, chicken and pasta.  But my biggest concern of the day has been my playlist.  Is it long enough? Is it good enough to push me through? Etc, etc. So I went in and revamped a little and came up with the best (and longest) running playlist to date. It is as follows:
