Gearing Up

Thanks for all of the birthday wishes guys. I had a nice day, complete with a nice dinner and wine :). Its going to a busy week leading up to Philly, so this will likely be my last post before I go. Looking forward to a pretzel and a good time, and hopefully a PR. Going for sub 4:09:20!

Good luck to JoyRun, Denise, Ted, who are also running Philly, and to anyone else I may have missed!





And for a funny spoof of the Rocky movie, I found this on You Tube.





Thanks for reading !

Hi Marci!

Thanks for stopping by. I'm excited about Sunday. I actually ran my first marathon in Columbus last year, but I'm just as nervous as I was then :)

Looks like you're all set for this weekend. Happy belated birthday and have fun on Sunday!

Carly said...

Sounds like you had a great day!

Good luck at the Philly Marathon this weekend Marci!! Can't wait for the race report. You are going to do awesome. And woohoo for the sub-4 goal. That's my goal in less than 3 weeks!!!

Video was hysterical, but I found myself being concerned for the poor Frenchman buying beef from that store. Wait a minute - they are FRENCH. Never mind, let them eat beef that has been hit with boxing gloves used at the urinal. :)

Have a great race!
