Time to talk politics of course!
Getting my gear together, and almost ready to go!
Time for team photos! Everyone is ready to go now…
Carrie really was everywhere this weekend…!
So… Rob and I were going to do two interviews for the same channel, so we were on the move. The guy is great at spotting celebrities, I was like “where, where, where?” as if I had left my contacts at home. He spotted Mya two meters away. I am not gonna lie, I had no clue who she was, but I had seen her on nyrrtv.org and heard she was running. She was a bit scared of the marathon biz so I told her about the course and the Queensboro and all. She seemed super nice. She ended up doing around 6:59.
Then Rob, again, spotted Christie Turlington, a couple of steps in the other direction. Again, if it’s not a runner, I have no clue. I have “track goggles”! So we said hello, she was tying her shoes, Rob kneels down to he at her height, and holds her hand… her friend is like “he’s gonna propose!!!”. It was pretty hysterical! NYC was her first too, so we chatted for a bit. She ended up doing 4:20! So fab!
So we went out for two seconds, stripped to look good, and did the interviews. I was really happy to be doing one in Spanish! And for NY1 no less: NYC’s finest channel!
This was when I thought I was gonna need arm warmers!
We went back to the tent, collected our stuff and schlepped it all to the skybox, another VIP tent super close to the start, where the elites and all the other stars were… Yo Drew!
Drew wanted to meet Edwin van der sar and we run into him right here; he got lucky! My pictures were crappy, but this one below is Mayor Bloomberg going by!
I see Bloomberg enough, his on the same train stop I am! But marathon morning everything is a bit more exciting.
