My Boston Marathon confirmation arrived on Tuesday and I've just left it sitting at the top of my inbox so that I can stare at it like a creeper every time I open my e-mail :)
I'm still in disbelief that I'm going to be running the Boston Marathon, feels like I'm living someone else's life or something. I still get a little giddy rush when I think about it. I may or may not get tears in my eyes about it when I think on it for a little while!
I have great news as a follow-up to my Boston post from a week and a half ago: Brittany, my dearest Richmond running buddy, just found out today that she's doing Boston as well (woohoo!!) so I can't wait to start planning our adventure.
And today my confirmation for the Runner's World Half Marathon festival showed up as well.
As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, I am going to run the Runner's World "Hat Trick" 5K, 10K, and half marathon all in one weekend! Obviously I'm not going to be shooting for any personal records for those three races, it'll be more of a series of fun runs. Use code BLOGGER25 for a 10% off code if you want to join me!
Did you know that Boston Registration is STILL available? It re-opens at 10am today and will remain open until the field size limit is reached. How long do you think it'll take until it fills up??
I worked nights all weekend long (Friday 7pm to 7am , Saturday 7pm to 7am) so the highlight of my weekend was going to my friend's baby shower!

Yes, I know I always wear that dress, but I was too post-nightshift-sleepy
to find something more original :(
|Granger wanted to announce news of my friend's baby to the world!|
Ellie, thanks for hosting, I had a wonderful time!
What was the highlight of your weekend?
And please TELL ME if you're running Boston 2013 too!!
I want to figure out some sort of way to keep track of who my Boston 2013 bloggy buddies are. I'll start brainstorming a way for us to follow each other, maybe I'll start a google doc spreadsheet (I'm a spreadsheet nerd at heart) or something like that.
PS I have some super exciting news to share in the next week or two!! (OK I know, I don't like it when people do cliff-hangers like that, but I need to wait for some details to be confirmed before I share more info w you!)
