Where do I start? So much I need to catch on, but I will start with things I think you might enjoy: the press!!!
This first one is one my absolute favorites!
I am in the home page of Women’s Health today!!! (at least for right now). WH belongs to Rodale, just like Runner’s World and Running Times… So when I talked to Susan, who wrote the article, she knew ALL about me, as she used to work at RW!!! Ehem, I was a bit shocked at how much she knew and was super prepared. Small World it is! So I wasn’t surprised when I saw her write up. The full article is here if you want to read it.
You’ll like this part (I hope!):
“Runners are the best people,” she says. “They’re really friendly and they will stop to help anybody in any race.
“Runners end up getting into the most amazing adventures. They will put on a pair of shoes and be ready for anything, which is something I think most people would be really scared of. Runners have that mentality that you can just do anything and go anywhere—it’s kind of hard to stop a runner. Those are the kind of people I want to hang out with.
NYRR’s official ING New York City Marathon website has this picture up right now:
Link is here to the official site, where the pictures from Race Week are.
Here is another blog, FitChickinthecity, who picked up on the story, with more pictures from the press conference that happened today (I will post about that ASAP).
I was on WCBS2 News, and have the clips, but will have to upload somewhere to be able to share… more coming soon, a bit overwhelmed (and exhausted at the moment!).
Are you guys super pumped too????????? Run with THE Bart tomorrow and Ryan Hall. So, you know… more pictures coming!!
