Getting Ready for Boston!
Typing that line just made me smile...like real big. :D
So when I was sick yesterday, I found myself feeling quite unproductive. :S I decided that if I just put a couple of things into a suitcase I'd feel better.
Don't forget that you can track me on Marathon Monday using the BAA's Athlete Tracker. I'm in Wave 2 with a start time of 10:25 a.m. Boston time, 11:25 Nova Scotia time and 11:55 Newfoundland time. Here's my bib number. #17520!!!! Just go to The Boston Marathon Site and plug in my digits and then hit track runner. I think a little green + sign pops up or something. You can also sign up for the AT & T auto text messaging service if you're a die hard GGR fan. ;) This will allow you to receive text alerts after I cross each distance marker along the course. Oh yeah, that's pretty darn cool!
You know you have awesome friends when they lend you their socks (just in case) AND they feed you when you go to pick them up! Thanks Heidi! FYI: this fancy bread was A-mazing!!!!
I know my sneaks are pretty new, but I had to keep up the tradition:
I experienced so many feelings on Monday, April 15, 2013 that I never thought I'd have in my life. I am so grateful to be returning to Boston to run the race they way it was meant to be run.
There are several things I'm looking forward to this year. I'm super duper excited to finally get to meet Hal Higdon in person! Myself along with the 74 other runners featured in the Boston Bombings Book 4:09:43 by Hal Higdon are invited to a dinner gathering with him on the Saturday evening before the race. Psyched!!!
Kara Goucher said she will be at the expo so I'm totally hoping to have an opportunity to meet her all crazed-fan-like.
Matt's running the Boston 5k on Saturday as a tune up for his upcoming Marathon this May! Wish him luck!!!
Okay, I'm off to bed now. Thanks so much for popping by for a visit this evening! I'm really hoping to get another post in before I leave on Friday. Hoping!
Boston is in 6 days!!!
