I've nearly finished buying all my race supplies for Ironman Florida!! This is what I scored yesterday at the local dollar store:
First, reflective tape, which is required front and back on the shirts of runners that are out there on the marathon course after dark (as I will be).
Second, blinking necklaces!! In RED! Which means FAST! Yes, they hand out glow necklaces on the course, but those don't blink, and they're probably in dumb colors that won't go with my race gear, and they don't blink. So these will be IMPORTANT to my race performance!!
And finally, glow bracelets. Lots of them. It's important for a girl to be properly accessorized.
My hair is going to be a little redder than usual, too. But not blinking. I'm considering bright red nail polish, too. I can't figure out a way to make my fingernails blink, either, however.
It's also important not to take this Ironman thing WAY TOO SERIOUSLY, like SOME folks I know. Who will not be linked to from this post, but they know who they are. Well, on second thought, they probably don't know who they are, sadly.
Let's have some FUN out there, people!!! It's way too long a day to do otherwise!!
