Okay- seriously it was all I could do not to use WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER as the title of this post.  Now that it’s out of my system (kind of) I can move on with the post.

Monday morning, while I was getting ready for work,  I nearly forgot to put on my pink checker flag socks. I wear them every race day.  I was up earlier than normal after a fairly crappy night of (lack of) sleep and more worried about getting my car to its service appointment by 7:30 and wasn’t thinking about it being race day. Thus, I nearly forgot to wear my socks.  Fear not- I remembered at the last minute that I was about to put on the wrong socks and grabbed the right pair.  Then as I was slipping them on I thought to myself- I should snap a picture of my checker flag socks and post them on my blog…but then common sense took over and I decided no one would want to see my socks. So consider yourself lucky that you aren’t looking at a pink sock emblazoned with checkered flags encasing my foot right now.  You are welcome.
