Boston Bound!

This is it! We hit the road at 4:30AM tomorrow.

The weather forecast looks pretty good, but let's hope that rain doesn't show up on Monday.



If you have any speedy vibes to spare, please send them my way on Sunday morning for the B.A.A. 5K.

Here are the details if you want to check out my results. I'm hoping for something around 23:00 - preferably <23:37.



(Bib # 76! How cool is that, with 4000 runners?!)

I'll be keeping everyone posted throughout the weekend via Twitter, so watch for updates in the side bar.

Have a great weekend! I'll be back Tuesday night.

Have a great time. If you have interest in good seafood, I'd recommend either the "Barking Crab" or "No Name" restaurant. Both by the water.

Best of luck! I'll be thinking of you having all that fun! Enjoy Boston. Drink some Sam Adams. If its warm enough, go on one of the Duck Tours where you take an amphibious vehicle around the city on a short tour and then it goes into the Charles River for a short boat ride. Lots of fun.

Marlene, way to go! 23:46!! very close to what you were aiming for. I think BAA 5k is a more difficult course.

littlesack said...

I thought about you this weekend. Just checked your time--that is awesome! I hope you are happy with it!!

ps- i tried my first Gu this weekend on an 8 mile run- i tried it at 45 minutes in...Still not sure how i feel about it. it tasted terrible, but going down my throat it felt good. I guess Ill try it again this weekend and see?!

Vickie said...

Marlene--congrats! Hope it was a great race.
