The Final Touches

It has been two weeks since my Half Marathon, pardon the suspense. Spoiler alert: I survived.

The last few days before my Half Marathon I was essentially a bundle of nerves. In lieu of a monologue chronicling my stages of Five Alarm Panic leading up to the start line, here is a photo documentary of the final 36 hours.

The Nervous Smile: Behind that smile I’m actually very nauseous.

The Ice Bath is my friend: or so was my mantra that last week when my hip decided to start acting up.

Glorious Carb Loading: Perfect excuse to try the new Dijon pretzel at Starbucks – the Dijon is baked INSIDE the dough!!

Pampering: Morning Stretch, afternoon Facial and nails. Well deserved luxuries.
