In 24 hours I will be in a car headed to Utica, New York to run in my first ever long distance race, the Boilermaker 15K!! I’m super excited, since the race is the biggest 15K, with 13,000 people running! 9.3 miles will also be the most I’ve ever ran at one time.

I wanted to get my carbs in tonight, so I made some Ronzoni SmartTaste pasta for dinner!

I topped my spaghetti with some roasted red pepper bruschetta, olive oil, oregano, and Parmesan cheese. I also had a slice of my new favorite bread…Country Kitchen Double Fiber Whole Wheat!

Tomorrow I’m going to make sure I eat very clean, maybe make some whole wheat pancakes for breakfast, maybe a sandwich for lunch and a light dinner, and drink lots of water…just to make sure my tummy is happy on Sunday. 🙂

After dinner tonight I decided to take a short bike ride, just to get in some more exercise, since I haven’t been working out much this week. I went for a six mile ride in 38 minutes and 30 seconds. It was such a warm and gorgeous night!!!

Okay, I’m off to relax. Hope everyone is having a nice Friday evening! 🙂

    Hi Jen- I just wanted to let you know I just started reading your blog, and I love it! You are very inspiring, and I really enjoy your posts. It’s funny- I’m racing the Boilermaker for the first time tomorrow too, and I’m also training for the same half-marathon. Small world, huh? I have also never done a race longer than a 5K, so I’m a little nervous, and very excited. Good luck tomorrow- I’m sure you’ll do great!
