There are other things going on race schedule and training wise that I will update you on at some point but for now all I can think about is Hood To Coast. The downside is I haven't started packing and I still have a cough from the never ending cold. The upside is none of that matters because my favorite weekend of the year is upon us.
I am slightly terrified of packing this evening. I thought I was being all smart by flying into Seattle and out of Portland to save money and see some friends. Then we got an e-mail saying that those of us who made this choice will have to bring all our luggage in the vans and need to fit it in one smallish backpack. Hmmmm....5 days, 4 runs (we have a warmup run), 3 cities with different weather patterns and one backpack. If I can do this, I might think about running for President.

Also you can be part of the team right now when you order any of the namesake 4-packs. They are discounted and you get a free HTC bottle. This is the first year they've ever made these, we're kind of a big deal!
I am on Team Watermelon and I am currently coveting both the Cherry Limeade & Lemonade flavors. I promise you won't be disappointed.
I am runner No. 3 on Team Watermelon and I have to say I am a little intimidated by the super fast ladies on my team but I hope that I'll inherit some of their speed mojo.
