It's Amanda Lovato...

GREAT compliment... but it's not me!
Yes, I ride Scott Bikes (same bike), and I race in a Splish swim suit (no bike shorts). However, this is not me. This is Amanda Lovato.

A good friend of mine calls me and tells me, "Bree, you are in the magazine this month!". I remember reading the magazine and never saw me... I don't think so. Then she goes on, "Bree, your bike, your Splish suit with no bike shorts, it's you!" Then I got the magazine page... BEST COMPLIMENT EVER! But it's not me. It's Amanda Lovato.

I don't own a sperm looking helmet, I wear Sidi bike shoes, and I'm about 15 pounds bigger... but, again, one of the best compliments ever! Maybe next year for Halloween I can pretend to be Amanda. Enough of that jazz...

Yesterday I took my last good run prior to Honolulu Marathon. It was about an hour and had lots of speed play, I had a blast! I love running when my legs feel like the juice is starting to come around. I love running knowing that all I have left is an easy 15 minute tune up run and then the whole 26.2 miles. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE running when I know it is not an A, B, C, or even Z race for me. Just a marathon because I love running marathons.

Last night I was so excited thinking and dreaming about my 26.2 miles of beautiful scenery around the island of Oahu. I felt like a little girl at Christmas that can't sleep the night Santa comes because I am excitedly waiting for my Easy-Bake-Oven or Snoopy slushy machine! I hope tonight is better sleeping or Sunday could be one LONG day for me!

When everyone's all decked out in the gear, who can tell who's who anyway? The point is that you both LOOK fast.

Good luck this weekend, and sweet dreams!

(PS Spice World is still one of my top 10 movies EVER. You sure you're losing sleep over this marathon and not the reunion tour?)
