Well, so I am leaving right now, right now, for Boston. This weekend is the All State 13.1 Boston Full and Half and we have a big team participating with Autism Speaks. Very exciting. (Anyone of you around Boston? I am sure I will go for a few runs…) I’ll be there Thursday through Sunday and we have a few exciting things planned for the team, including a reception with running legends Frank Shorter and Bill Rodgers. Whaaaat? YES. Seriously Frank Shorter and Bill Rodgers. I am SO freaking excited!
Anyway, will share more soon…
The other thing is… I wasn’t sure if I should sign up for Boston…
I got all temperamental back in April/May and wanted to do it. just because, you know. But I never had intended to go back to run Boston since I had already done it… Anyway, I debated, thought, slept over it, and mostly, friends convinced me on Facebook, and here’s the result…
Now, I wait for confirmation… I’d like to find a FAST marathon to do before Boston. Mid February to mid March, to be recovered for Boston, but we shall see about that… lots to plan. To start, I have to START RUNNING, and I am signed up to two marathons in the next two months… First I gotta build some endurance!
Awesome, I’m glad you signed up for the Boston Marathon! It should be really special for 2014. Run it for those of us who haven’t qualified yet! 🙂
Good for you on Boston! I wish I was around this weekend but I’ll be at an ovarian cancer race in South Boston on Sunday. Bill Rodgers is such a nice guy and so easy to talk to that should be fun.
Great pic, I met Bill at the 2013 Boston Marathon signing his book. Great guy and surely a class act. Looking forward to Boston 2014 (# 5 ). I was one of those runners stopped 0.2 mi. from the finish. I am so excited this will be Marathon #14 and still going strong at 65 yrs. Good luck at Boston 2014!
