Wow--you all just blow me away. Thanks for all the believing in me. Makes me want to just book a marathon in each of your states (countries) just so I can run with yas!!
I'll take mucho pics to post. I'm getting very excited!! I emailed the group I trained for this race and have heard back from many of them. They are very nervous and it's just awesome to see the race thru their eyes....brings it all back to when I started. And that's what it's all about--getting more people into the sport, more people getting healthy, sharing this great feeling.
The shoes are sponsored by New Balance--lucky for me since that's what I wear. Each pace leader got to pick their style--I wear the 1023's, which are now the 1000's. We are all given a specific outfit to wear---must have lots of advertising for New Balance on it. Nothing like America and their bottom lines!!
And, oh, by the way--I'm only 7 lbs away from my goal! Holy Cripes Batman!!!
