As most of the world will be sleeping in on Monday for Labor Day (ok, not the whole world, but most of the people I associate with), I will be running the Saguaro National Park 8 mile Labor Day race. It's the 2nd event in the Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown race series.
Saguaro is one of my favorite races to do. This is my fifth year to do it (read about last year's race here). Why? Maybe because of the long hill (1.5 miles) you have to climb after 3 miles into the race. Maybe because it's hot. (It's at 6:30, it's not THAT hot yet!). Or maybe because I never feel as prepared as I could but feel SO accomplished that I did it? I'm never prepared as much as I would like to be. The end of summer heat and the start of school always catch me and this race is always a super challenge.
And to decide on an outfit... if I'm not going to be super fast, I might as well look good doing it! My Cute Husband is doing it with me again - he's a great running partner to have along with you at races. Though, he never puts much thought into what he will wear... he has 2 of the exact same pairs of shorts and 2 of the same shirts, just different colors.
Good luck to all those running in other events this weekend! (Did I mention I'm a tad bit green with envy of those of you running in that small Anaheim race? Of course if I was there, I wouldn't be doing Saguaro either.)
