Night Before the Race

Well, here I's 10:50 and I am ready to go to bed! I've got everything all set out...except my damn favorite sports bra! I have 2 of them, and I can't find either one...I have back ups, but I'm going to look for it one more time in the morning while I'm making my coffee. My plan is to get up around 5:30 and leave around 6:30, registration is open until 7:30 and the race starts at 8:00!
I haven't really talked about my goals for this race, mainly because of the hip trouble that I've been having I've just been focusing on running without hurting. I'm hoping to finish it around 2:25. I am going to do my run/walk intervals starting after mile 5. Most importantly, I just want to finish and feel "pretty good"!
Alright, time for me to catch some ZZZZZ's!
