Well, yesterday was a relaxing, enjoyable vacation-like day! We even had a chance to workout on the track before today’s race. Andi ran a strong 3xmile workout while I did some drills, miles, and strides. Here’s some specifics!
First, Stanford updates: see yesterday’s post for schedule and final heat sheets information. Also, in order to watch the live feed from flotrack.org, you will need to actually login to flotrack or create a username/password. It is entirely free and well-worthwhile to see races live like this. Keep in mind, it will take a few minutes to do so, so you may want to begin the process 10 min. before race time to be sure you do not miss the race!
Second, Andi and I started the day with a nice continental breakfast in our hotel (great bagels!) and decided to check out the Stanford Shopping Center early in the day. It was a great time, even though neither of us really like shopping much. The place was simply beautiful, and our lunch was delicious!
USB man, better known as a 4-port USB splitter, has brought us a few laughs!
Fourth, we jogged from our hotel to the track (less than 2 miles away!) for packet pick-up and Andi’s workout.
Finally, we concluded the day with dinner and a movie (sort of). Olive Garden never sleeps when trackies are in town! Chicken Alfredo with a bowl of Zuppa and bread sticks galore!
After dinner, we didn’t actually get to see a movie. Instead, we drove around looking for a yogurt shop that didn’t exist (well, it apparently did, in a completely different place), and we watched 2.5 episodes of NCIS in our room. Another great day! Next time you read this blog, we hope to be planning a trip to Eugene in a few months!
