Race day kit picked up

Picked up race day kit, included in the bag:

1) t-shirt

2) chipped number

3) white cap

4) brooks deodorant talc

5) safety pins

While there I purchased a running belt with water bottles, water bottles look good as have a good squirt action. Won't use it tomorrow as i have read on here best not to try new kit on a race day.

Race starts at 9am (1pm UK time) and the forecast is 21degrees with clouds tomorrow so a good running day.

Lots of water tonight and pasta, early to bed and then it will be a banana and half a slice of toast, water and coffee tomorrow for breakfast. Then it's a short walk to the park tomorrow. Very excited and nervous, now off to paint my nails blue to match my top.
