warm fuzzy feelings

i think that my favorite word lately is elite.


while i may not be kara goucher elite and I usually linger as the caboose of the real elites, that five letter word always warms my heart when I see it next to my name.

feel like i could say it all day long.

elite. elite. elite. elite. elite.

it's looks like it's going to potentially be another hot one tomorrow morning, but i don't care.


10 milers are my favorite distance to race and the soldier field 10 is by far my favorite race in the city of chicago. even wrote a little tribute to this race last year to convince my hubby to let me register. (sorry about #9 d...maybe next year?)

i haven't been this excited for a race in some time, probably since my late summer half last year, and quite honestly could care less about the weather at this point. whether it's hot as all heck like last week or nice and breezy, i plan to race those 10 miles like an animal. 
There is no plan b.

in the words of pam beasley:
i'm gonna start fast, then i'm gonna run fast in the middle, then i'm gonna end fast. 
that's my flawless plan for tomorrow.
gotta earn that elite title and hold onto it as long as i can.
