Boston Bound

Wow so there hasn't been much posting going on over here, or much commenting by myself on other blogs. My apologies, life has just been hectic leading up to this race. By far my most intense training so far even though it was a shorter time span than normal. On top of that running club stuff and work have had me feeling like a chicken with its head cut off. I cannot wait to board the train tomorrow and just relax until I get to Boston! This weekend is going to be a blast. Looking forward to hanging out with my SERC pals and meeting up with some blogger pals. Oh and running that little race on Monday ;)

Did my little dress rehearsal tonight and the 2 miles at race pace went off without a hitch. Didn't feel amazing, but I didn't feel bad either and I settled right into pace right away so that has to be a good sign.

Daisy is bringing the laptop and I just bought a brand new (pink) camera so hopefully we will be keeping everyone updated on the weekend! Lots of fun planned but hopefully we will be keeping mostly off our feet and saving the real partying for Monday afternoon.

Thanks for all the well wishes. I feel like I have got to be one of the most highly supported amateurs out there or something. Between my family, friends, coworkers, and blog friends I know I will have the good vibes I need to do well on Monday. If you are bored and have nothing to do you can track me Monday my bib is 11603. They should have tracking on the site Monday if you want to follow along with all your friends progress. I'll be starting in wave one and taking my chances with the crowds. Plan is to start behind pace, run comfortable through the hills and then haul ass all the way to Boylston street once I crest Heartbreak. We'll see how I fare :)
