My wonderful husband picked up my run kit for me on Friday when he was on his way home from work, it took an hour to get the run kit but it was worth not having to drive in any earlier!

We were aiming to be at the run site for 730, an hour before start time as I needed to exchange the shirt that I received. Somehow they had me down for a much smaller size than I wear. I love dealing with Try Events, they are awesome and so easy to deal with. We were really surprised when we arrived to see how full the parking lot already was with more than 45 minutes to go before the start of the race. I had to wait about 20 minutes on site to change my shirt as there were a lot of event day registrants and people picking up their kits. I was so lucky to get the last shirt in the size that I needed. When looking at it I thought it may actually fit, so I went into the washrooms and put it on. Low and behold, a tech shirt actually fit me! Yeah!
A quick trip back to the car to grab my stuff and I was ready to head to the start line. There were a lot of people there and I have to admit I was a little nervous as I know that I'm slow and having so many true athlete's around me, really intimidated me for a few minutes. I had a lot of those "what do you think you're doing here" thoughts going through my head but I quickly overcame my self doubt. It helped to have my husband there for support, before it was time to get ready to go.

|Yep, just me on the trail, with a few people walking behind me.|
