Wellâ€¦ I think the verdict is that Iâ€™m going to do the full 100 mile ride. I thought my current sickness was related to the illness Iâ€™ve been fighting off at the beginning of the week, but now Iâ€™m convinced Iâ€™ll allergic to Jennaâ€™s cutie cat, Dexter. Which is a good thing!
Jenna and i spent the day watching Hulu.com, reading, and carb loading. Eating extra before a race as long as this one is crucial!
Millet bread with jam:
Cherries from the farmers market:
For dinner, my dad and Jennaâ€™s boyfriend came over. We had a lovely little picnic on the living room floor since Jenna still doesnâ€™t have any furniture.
Jenna made cheese-stuffed shells and roasted broccoli.
I went back for a few more shells, but couldnâ€™t finish it all in the end!
We did have room for ice cream, though! We made a spontaneous run for Coldstoneâ€™s, and Iâ€™m so glad we did!
I had coffee ice cream with caramel sauce and Reseeâ€™s.
If today doesnâ€™t top off my glycogen stores, nothing will!
Game plan for tomorrow (Sunday):
- Up at 5:15
- Leave at 5:45
- Drive to Napa Valley
- Packet pick-up, including my special polka dot jersey for raising more than $3,000 for the Livestrong Foundation
- Race starts at 8:30
I donâ€™t want to set any time goals for myself because this is my first Century, itâ€™s cold outside, AND the course is hilly, but Iâ€™m anticipating that weâ€™ll come in around 9 hours with breaks. Weâ€™ll see!
This race is dedicated to everyone who donated to my fundraising efforts; together we raised $3,370 for the fight against cancer! Thank you so much! This race is also dedicated to my friends and family members who have fought/are fighting cancer. Iâ€™ll be thinking of you all during the rough parts of my ride!
