Thursday: I’m so excited!
Sunday: I’m so scared…
I’m currently SO excited for the marathon, I could explode. Come Sunday, I will be so scared, Jessie Spano-style. But I’ll have 26.2 miles to burn off those initial nerves.
My job can be really intense, but when I get to talk marathon at work, I can’t really complain. Yesterday was my client New Balance’s spring preview. There’s all kinds of awesome stuff coming out this spring that I will talk about at a later date, but for now let’s talk marathon.
If you feel this way, you can come back later next week.
Inspired by graffiti artist Jimi Crayon, NB released a limited-edition New York City Marathon edition of the 860v3.
Each borough is represented on the shoe, and there are awesome details like the skyline on the left, and a little New Balance logo in an apple on the back.
After the press preview, we had dinner with the New Balance team at CraftBar. I sat across from a coworker who has run Marine Corps twice and absolutely loved the race. She gave me some great spectator tips. She said that if you tell someone to go to the Key Bridge and the Mall, they can see you four times. Once when you come across the Key Bridge, then they go to the end of the bridge to watch you come down the hill through Georgetown, then they hop on the Metro in Rosslyn and take it to the Mall to watch you as you come down both sides of the mall.
Mom, you got that?
If you won’t be in D.C., you can stalk me here.
One more day of work, a bunch of errands, dropping off my sweet little dog with my wonderful friend Shannon…
AND THEN DC!
I’m coming for you.
