Tick Tock Tick Tock

I think the last few days leading up to an event are great. BUT, when the event coincides with a family vacation - those days are awful !!! Two more days to go until we are on a plane to Disney, and the only people packed are the 5 and 6 year olds. I always find packing for a January Disney trip to be challenging - the weather is constantly changing from warm to cold. The days can get into the 70s, and the nights can be in the 40s. Plus, I'm backing for two races, the Half and Full Marathons, so that means double race clothes, throwaway sweats, double electrolyte tablets, double gels, etc....

One more training run to go for tomorrow and then it is off to the races. Anyone want to volunteer to pack for me ???

  2. Dude I TOTALLY would pack for you if I didn't have to pack for myself. And packing for a woman is always a disaster because we all think we need most of our closet :P

  4. Doesn't packing take an inordinate amount of time? Yeah, two sets of running clothes, plus whatever the weather "says" it's going to be-good luck with it all!
