Pre-race Preparations

Eeek...I am soooooooooo nervous about the Two Oceans race on Saturday in Cape Town. I am trying to take deep breathes and thinking of the tour in the stellenbosch wine route the day after the race.

Lists always help.

Race week preparations:
  • Go for two easy runs
  • Drink water
  • Buy energy beans
  • Buy and test 'run' a bigger knee brace....I really don't think the brace is supposed to cut off all blood circulation! 
  • Buy ibuprofen
  • Phone Expedia (once more!!) and confirm that a refund is being processed for the messed-up flight.
  • Sort out transport to and from the airport
  • Don't it for the vineyards of Cape Town!
  • Charge i-pod and camera
  • Pack; remember to put running gear in hand luggage
  • Paint nails the same colour as running cap!!
  • Don't worry if you only have time for half of the things on the list!



    1. Good luck!


    2. Thanks! My to-do list is getting shorter,that is one good thing!
