Brief update, Jill is no longer going to be able to run the race with us. I've found another runner, her name is Beth Harrop and she's super fun. Van #1 you're going to love her. I'll add her to the blog soon so she can introduce herself.
If you weren't at the meeting go HERE and print off a Race Day Checklist. This is where we're getting the majority of the topics from.
Aside from your personal items these are the assignments we have come up with so far:
- Two headlamps -Lori & Sharlynn
- Two reflective Vests - Robyn & Trina
- Race Bibles (2) - Trina will print them off
- Cooler - Kristin & Robyn
- Music - Lori & Amanda
- First Aid Kits - Amanda
- Money ($10-$20) - Everyone
- Medical Information - Everyone needs to email me any special needs. If you are diabetic we need to know, if you're allergic to bees, etc. a) what the allergy/special need b) what to do or what to tell EMT if anything were to happen.
- 2 way radios per van - still need
- Cameras! - any takers?
Food List Per Van (please add if you think I'm forgetting something)
- 2 cases of water
- deli meat
- granola bars
- peanut butter
- baby wipes
We still need a Van for Van #1. A mini-van will be okay, just a little smushy. If anyone knows someone with an expedition, suburban, navigator, etc will you ask them if we can borrow it for two days? :)
Manda will let us know if those are covered or not.
No one has lucked out. Any updates on that from anyone else? Even if we can get $100 that will help us cover the cost of gas.
What do I need to be doing NOW?
Make sure you get at least one multiple run day in before the race. Which means you need to run 2-3 times in a 24 hour period to make sure your body doesn't revolt when the race comes. Make sure you are getting very hydrated. The day before the race you're going to want to drink at least 2 liters of water. Trust me.
Also, you need to go to THIS LIST and make sure you have everything for the race. If you have ANY questions please leave them in the comments. We chatted a lot about race logisitics and other issues. What questions do those who weren't at the meeting have. Any concerns? Next week I'll be getting the team captain minutes. I'll post them here. They will go through the race in excrutiating detail and help you understand the race even more. Okay... I'm getting excited... go team! 1...2...3.. Break!
