The really important IMFL prep

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.

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!!

So I take it your putting those in Bag #5. Yeah I got to get my reflective tape too.
 
Please...do enlighten us...to whom are you referring when you say some of us are taking this too seriously?
 
Hey, red is MY color. >:-(
 
Besides, Ironman is a SERIOUS event and those who don't take it SERIOUSLY just diminish the accomplishment of those who do.
 
don't forget to pack this (http://www.wlra.us/wl/wlsixpak.htm). you will have to check it due to its size.
 
LOL Jonathan! I'm an old midwesterner. I spent a long time looking for that frog on the label...
