Nashville Packing List

Here is my first post on race preparation this week - my extensive packing list! It really helps to ease my mind when I have everything written down and planned out. I also have a personal itinerary (I'm not making Chad stick to it!) for Friday and Saturday (will probably post it next!) just to make sure that I don't forget to do anything in the excitement of all the pre-race activities. My main goal for Friday is to relax , rest, and eat and hydrate well. It will only take 3 or so hours to get to Nashville, and Chad and I hope to be there by 12:00pm. I hope to be asleep by 8:00pm!

I've already started my "carbo-loading" for the week - each night this week I am eating a serving of whole wheat linguine with marinara sauce and sauteed squash, zucchini and spinach - it is super filling and delicious!
