I’m So Excited (For MCM)!

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…


I’m coming for you.

    Excited for the MCM also! The local weather stations here in DC have been watching Sandy like a hawk. Right now it’s not looking so great, so make sure to pack something comfy for the rain! 🙂 Goodluck!

    I’m really excited for you! Seems like a veryyy long time ago we were doing one of the first long runs for the marathons! I signed up to track you!! You are going to crush it.

    Theodora, I’m running it too and I’m so excited/ scared as well! However, it’s my first marathon so I’m in a little bit different boat than you are. 🙂

    Your blog is awesome. Hope I get to see you on the course! Good luck and keep up the inspiring writing!

    I’m shooting for a sub-4 marathon at marine corps this weekend too! I’m a lurker but just had to wish you good luck! Maybe I’ll see you out on the course 🙂

    I clicked over from Tina’s blog to wish you good luck!! MCM was my first and only marathon in 2010 (I ran a 4:08) and it is truly an unbelievable race! Beat the bridge around mile 20 is the worst part but if you make it through that, you will be fine. It’s hard to start fast with the crowds, so have faith that you will have something left in the tank!!
