So far so good....

If you read my last post, I was paranoid about catching whatever my daughter had. I think the wife and I are carriers of this sickness because everyone around us have been coming down with similar illnesses. From co-workers to friends, they have been going down. Knock on wood, if that is the case, I'll take it. Sorry everyone!...

On Monday, I dragged a coworker with me to Hopkinton (it's only 5 mins away) so he could take some pictures of me with this sign:

I can't tell you how long I have waited for this picture!!

While there, we were interviewed by a journalist from the MetroWest Daily News (a local news paper). He asked us if we were running, which I said yes and my coworker just laughed at the thought. He asked us a couple other questions and took a couple pictures of my coworker taking a pictures of me in front of the sign. He didn't say if or when he would post them though. Been keeping my eyes out for it!

I have one last training run left and I'm done. I'm as ready as I can be for Boston. I plan on doing my last 3 miler tomorrow (Thursday). Friday I have a deep tissue massage scheduled. Which is very well needed. Saturday will be Bib pickup at the Expo in the morning and then I will be working the expo from 12:30 to 6 also doing the Bib pickup for other runners. It's going to be a long day!!

Sunday I plan on resting, drinking lots of water and just passing the time. I know that night I wont sleep so the rest will be needed. I need to be out of the house by 6am Monday morning to catch the bus in Worcester headed to Hopkinton.

Nothing left to do but to F' it up - as my friend would say. So nothing crazy from here to then....

I posted this in my Facebook page today:


This so describes me right now.... I'm sorry for all of you (non runners) that I have bored with my marathon talks.... but hey,.... if you come and ask me about my running, be prepared to listen to me for the next hour or so.... LOL. If you don't want to know, don't ask me :)


Have a great rest of the week. I'll post back after the expo.

When it got to Sunday's plans in your post, I read drinking lots of water and passing it. My mind always seems to be in the lavatory.
