You’re a Firework!

So tomorrow is race day! The “season kickoff” of all the various races that I have signed up for.


The Cherry Blossom 10 miler.


I got up this morning and met BklynDiva (@thefitlounge) at the metro to go to pick up our race packets and check out the Expo shop. My goal was to complete my outfit for a coordinated look and @thefitlounge was looking for an entire race day ensemble. We may not be fast but WE LOOK GOOD! We come up out of the Judiciary Square metro stop across from the National Museum where the expo was and the line was almost a block long. We were like DA HELL! It went pretty quickly and we hit the expo.


AND WE WERE WINNING!!!! We hit some 50% off racks and BOO-YAA, SCORE!


I completed my race day outfit & picked up an outfit to match Dominique Diva Dawes (yeah, my bike) to train in. I also picked me up a “Run Skirt”. Has a pair of capri’s built in. I can’t wait to get some run time in them. KEEEE-UUUUTTEEEE! GO ME!!!



I also just HAD to get some stickers for my car. HAD TO!



@thefitlounge and I wrapped it up, walked outside and were stopped in our tracks. The line to get into the building was now 3 city blocks long, going around the 3 sides of the building. DAMN SHAWTY! How bout that wait? I’m so glad that we got up and went early.


So, I guess I’m RET TA GO! …and right now I can’t get this song out of my head. It has been speaking to me about a lot of things and while I haven’t achieved a couple of goals I set for myself recently, while I won’t break any speed records tomorrow…


BABY I’M A FIREWORK…and I’m going to let my colors burst.


Tomorrow is the start of a lot of new beginnings.


You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gunna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own
