Yep, it’s pretty much all I can think about. The race next Sunday, wait, this Sunday. The race is this week! Six days away! Right, like I said, it’s pretty much the only thing on my mind.
Still have a ton to do leading up to the race. Slowly but surely I have been working on my race shirt. Since I am running for the James Blake Foundation, I have a charity shirt to race in. Want a sneak peak? It’s a work in progress, and I have about 20 more names to add to the back. As promised, any donor who has made a donation gets their name on my shirt. Hers what it looks like so far.
So there’s that. The emails, and communications have been increasing, and I expect a ton more since it’s now RACE WEEK! The Marathon App is to be released this week, so folks all around the globe can track me during my race. Will be looking for that communication today. It will show me as a tiny blip on the race course so that all of my adoring fans can meet me at appropriate places at the right times in a crowd of over a million spectators.
Can you see me?
As far as the week goes, I still have a ton to do to get ready for my trip. This isn’t some easy, quick trip either. It involves about 20 hours in the car, over the course of about a week. Packing, not only for the race itself is key. Lots of weather variables. I am actually glad that I am driving, because it will allow me to pack more of what I might need, and not have to worry about luggage constraints.
So, yeah, I have a meeting time with Staten Island in less than a week. It’s going to be epic, and a journey I will document in pictures and words along the way. Can barely contain my excitement!
Oh, and there’s still time to donate to my charity partner. I still haven’t met my fundraising goal, so please consider a donation today, or sometime this week. I’ll take my markers with me on my trip so you’ll still get your name on my shirt right up until Saturday night.
You can donate here:
Thank you so much for being a part of my journey to New York. Many updates to come throughout the week!
That shirt is pretty cool! NY is one of those marathons I don’t know if I’d ever want to run, but it’s so fun hearing about everyone else’s experiences with it. It DOES look so fun and interesting though! I hope you have an easy, safe trip up north!
Look forward to reading your race week updates!
