Here is the elevation profile from my long run. I was sure to get plenty of hill work in and I was able to maintain my goal pace of 11:30 min/mile. Even more exciting is that I ran the entire distance in my PI Streak II's! I can't wait to share my review of these shoes!
I was careful to time my fuel intake, and I think I've finally got a good combination of different carb sources that won't upset my GI tract: Roctane, Clif Shot Blocks, 2nd Surge and Power Gel. I am going to back off more during this taper period than I did for Grandma's by cutting my mileage and slowing down. My only goal for this race is to have a great time and take lots of pictures along the way - and of course the icing on the cake - to see hubby waiting for me at the finish line!
Later on this day, hubby and I drove into Hollywood for the World Premier of the new Cirque Du Soleil show, IRIS, at the Kodak Theatre on Hollywood Blvd. Hubs works for the Operations department so we were invited to the World Premier event and after party! The celebs saw the 5pm show and the cast, crew and their family members saw the 9pm show (well, some of the cast and crew weren't in the audience since they still had a show to put on). :-) It is phenomenal.
Any time Hollywood Blvd is shut down for several days, you know something big is happening in the Entertainment world. This is the same place where the Academy Awards are held every year. Here are a few shots of the construction of this massive tent for the after party. Hubby's brother was part of the art design construction crew.
The Set Up:
The After Party!
|Proof you can run an LSD and wear 3 inch heels on the same day|
|Our DJ for the night. Super cool lasers controlled the trax.|
|No celebration is complete without a little bubbly|
|This guy's a keeper.|
We were also celebrating our 8th wedding anniversary! I love you baby!
Thank you for a GREAT night - Hollywood style!
