The temperature is going to be perfect, the rain is going to be not quite so perfect and who knows what the wind will be:) But we will all be in the same boat and we will be running the Boston Marathon so who cares… no matter what, it will be quite the party on Monday!
Saturday started off with our last run of our training cycle. 3.5 miles at who knows what pace.
Just cross your fingers that the weather forecast for Monday suddenly changes to mimic the weather that we had yesterday:)
Wouldn’t it be amazing to always walk inside your house and have eggs, potatoes and fruit waiting for you? Hotels are the best.
We showered real quick and made it just in time to watch the Men and Women’s Elite mile.
Dejen Gebremeskel finished in 4:04 for first place!
They all cruised by so so fast!
Seyaum made a new course record with a 4:35!!!
We went back to the expo for a while, ate some pizza and then this chocolate dipped macaroon that entered my life at just the right time.
The absolute most exciting part of the day was going to a Q & A with Desi Linden and Amy Cragg!
PS did you guys know that these two used to be roommates together at ASU?!
A few things about them!
Desi—> She will be doing 6 easy miles today followed by a lot of relaxation. She bought Red Sox tickets for everyone staying with her so that she could have some time on her own today before the race. She will be running in the Brooks T7s. Before today’s race she will be eating a bagel with peanut butter, lots of coffee and then a power gel about an hour before the race.
Amy—> Amy will be getting in a 4 mile run today with strides and drills followed by some chiro work. She will be relaxing and doing her best to not think about the race. She’ll be eating eggs, toast and bacon (if they have it)! Amy will also be wearing the Brooks T7s to race in.
And then we found the finish line. The beautiful, beautiful finish line.
Have a fabulous Sunday and pray for a little less wind for us on Monday mmkay?!? Thanks!
