I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again (oh so many times). Downtown San Diego is my favorite place in the world. It is absolutely impossible to not enjoy yourself here.
SD is the most perfect city for running. I had a short 3 mile shakeout run this morning. I promptly got carried away snapping some pictures of the wonderful view. Yeah, I was THAT runner 😉 I probably looked like a tacky tourist, but ohhh well!
Because I’m a bottomless pit teenager, my stomach was grumbling again a couple of hours later. A bagel with cream cheese made the perfect snack. Gotta carbo load!
I was given a bag with healthy and natural samples of mambo foods! They have some pretty neat products! The snacks helped keep me fueled throughout the day.
Then we did the typical tourist type stuff and walked around the Gaslamp District! We stopped in an awesome Reebok store. They were giving away cards with exercises on them. I’m always looking for new things to include in my workout routine! I may have to form a Will’s bootcamp sometime soon 😉
We finished off our night the right way– with a carb loading sesh. The Old Spaghetti Factory did an amazing job at providing my pre race meal: minestrone soup, bread, and wheat pasta with marinara sauce!
I am currently typing this at 8pm. Only 11 hours until the gun goes off! When this is posted, I will just be starting my run. I am SO psyched! Send some good lucks in my direction! I’ll be sure to take many pictures and have a race review tomorrow. Enjoy your Sunday 🙂
How about you?
