Here we are! Marathon weekend!!!
Thanks for all of the encouraging messages that keep coming in via comments, emails and facebook! I’m just so excited. Ashley came over last night and gave me this cute magnet!!! I love it!
HAHA I just have to laugh at the Boston Weather… rain, clouds, sun… Finally it looks like it might clear up by race day!
That’s good news for my spectators too! I wouldn’t want anyone to have to stand in the rain all day!
Speaking of spectators…. I have a request: If anyone will be out there on race day, be sure to take pictures of yourselves on the sidelines! I want to have pictures of you guys too! And take pictures of the atmosphere. I fear that it’s going to go by so fast that I’ll forget to take it all in.
And if you see the elite pack run by, take pictures of them too!!!! GO RYAN HALL!
Tracking me…if you want to track me, you can find info on that here! My Bib# is 22501. I run about a 12 minute mile (and probably a little slower towards the end).
Track Valerie Bertinelli too! Her Bib is# 22503 (OMG I just realized she is just 2 bib numbers from me! How cool is that!!?!!) If you see her, TAKE PICTURES!!!
Project Times…If you’re going to be on the sidelines, here are my projected splits:
Start Time: 10:30a
Mile 10: 12:45p
Mile 13: 1:30p
Mile 20 (heartbreak hill): 3:00p
Mile 25: 4:00p
Finish Line: 4:15p
In the news…I have a story in the Haverhill Gazette this week!
See you in Boston!
