Marathon logistics [May. 30th, 2004|05:50 pm]

On a brighter note, the marathon is tomorrow morning, and I went down to McCormick Place to get my Marathon Packet, which consists of a bib number and timing chip and some free goodies such as energy bars and coupons and a T-shirt. I had been worried about the logistics of getting to the right place and getting timed and all, but the people there were exceedingly nice and helpful and I know exactly what to do and where to go tomorow. So now all I have to worry about is, well, running a marathon.

I'm going to make a big spaghetti dinner and then get a lot of sleep.

Oh, yeah, and I finally got that cell phone I was talking about. (Fisher-Price: My First Cell Phone!) It's going to be my permanent number from now on, and I'm relieved to finally have a permanent number. Do call; my number is 847-636-0186.

Also, I want to give a big, big thanks to all of you who've encouraged me through this whole marathon thing. You have no idea how much you've done for me. You rock.

Hope it goes well! (Also hope the weather improves, so you're not running through flooded gutters and trying to dodge the lightning - would they cancel in that event?)

Thanks! Actually, the morning forecast looks ideal, and that's the one I care about because the race starts at 6 a.m., heh. But I seriously doubt that they would cancel or postpone, even if the weather sucked. Two years ago I think they did it in a downpour ...

eee, i'm so excited for you.

and i do hope the weather's good. they don't tend to cancel these things, they did the triathlon in a flood or something two years ago.

but really, good luck.

Aw, shucks. =) Well, I'm pretty bad at almost every other sport, so I think it all evens out.
