Today I headed to the Convention Center to get my bib.
I’m literally so excited and I almost feel as if I can’t wait until Monday! This week as I logged some low mileage I had my “holy crap, I can totally do this!” moment. I know I won’t be fast, but I am feeling strong and ready to tackle the 26.2 miles. I can’t wait to see all of my friends along the way and then my family and friends at the finish!
We signed a wall at the expo. Well actually we signed one wall of many!
The perks of being tall, I found a relatively blank space a little higher up.
Dad signing some love.
Mom making her mark.
I bought like 5 shirts, 2 hats, a headband and sneaker tabs. I also won 2 $10 Macy’s cards (well I won one and my dad won one) in addition to the goodies that came in my official bag. It was a really nice event and I was impressed with the organization and layout. (Though I think by going today I may have missed some of the worst crowds the remainder of the weekend).
From the Convention Center we headed down to Old South Church who organized the Marathon Scarf Project. This is an absolute beautiful gesture, one of remembrance and hope. The church rallied knitters across the country, and beyond, to provide all runners this year with scarves to wrap us in love and prayer.
The scarf I chose was beautifully made with love by Mary Beth Breslin of Galesburg, IL. So special, I will cherish it always!
It was incredible walking around the city and seeing so many of fellow runners with their bags and scarves. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it always, I feel so honored to be a part of this year’s marathon.
And finally, the marathon sneaks are ready to go!
Off to the B.A.A. 5k and tribute run tomorrow morning!
Don’t forget, we’re close to final call for the virtual pep rally so get your pics to me by Sunday afternoon!
