RUNAPALOOZA


I am hoping to take a nap at work today, because I am thinking it might be the only real rest that I get over the next couple days, as the Runapalooza-RNR-Party-Fest starts tonight with the arrival of Mendy, David and Lori ~ and then the party really gets moving (or so I hear) with the arrival of Marcy tomorrow right before the RNR lunch get-together!!!!

Go easy on me guys ~ I am a whimp :)

My brain is still computing that we are going OUT ~ like to a bar ~ tonight after 9pm. I'm not in college anymore, ya know........this is going to require some serious STARBUCKS.

Amid all the chaos that promises to ensue, I am SO excited to meet some of the folks that inspire me and make me laugh on a regular basis! I think that Lisa is going to need some therapy after this weekend from the stress of volunteering to be both the Social Director AND Chaffeur, all at the same time. KUDOS, Lisa ~~~~ you rock lady!!!

And a huge thanks to Jess also ~ who has volunteered to track our progress during the race on Sunday! Against my better judgement, I am actually going to be sending Jess my bib number so that I can confirm on the world wide web just how slow I actually do run!!!! So check us out HERE on Sunday. Maybe just like the Norad Santa-Tracker, Jess can set up an 800 line where you can call and ask specifics :P

And finally, and MOST IMPORTANTLY ~~~ a huge amount of good luck and positive running vibes are going out to my fellow-TRC running buddy, PAT ~ who is running his very first FULL marathon at the RNR on Sunday!!!! We may not be trucking along the canals with you like on past Sundays, but our thoughts and wishes are definitely with you all the way.......you are going to be FANTASTIC!!!

Let's Rock & Roll!!!!!

Glad to be the reporter. Makes me feel as though I'm not missing as much as I truly am! Be sure to get that bib # to me!

9pm, I have a hot date with my pillow at that time. I do not think Starbucks will do the trick, you better switch to something better tasting like Duncan Doughnuts coffee. I will see you tomorrow. Oh, yea is this going to become an annual event?

Pat said...

Oh Thank You. I am a bit on the nervous side about the 26.2 miles. I need all the good vibes I can get. I know the rest of the TRC will do great. Good Luck and I'll see you tomorrow. Heck, it's 9:14, you're probably doing shots by now.

Hey Poke... Great work. Just saw your results. I could have SO run with you.. Waaaa. I'm crying like a baby. Enough of the pity. I am just ecstatic for you. YOU DID IT. GREAT JOB. HOPE IT WAS A BLAST!!!!

I was tracking you for awhile then went to the gym and thought of you while I was on the elliptical. Can't wait to hear all the tales...
