There isn't a lot to report, to be honest. I went out to cheer on the runners at the Baltimore Marathon last weekend, and ended up on camera as the helicopter hovered above us cheering. Pretty cool! One of my group members was doing the half and one was supposed to do the full, but he ended up injured and unable to run, which makes me sad beyond words. Otherwise, I'm just going out and doing my runs and enjoying the lovely fall weather that we are having in Baltimore.
I have my whole marathon weekend all planned out, beginning with the Expo on Friday and possibly a Broadway show on Saturday. I can't wait!! I mean it, I'm really actually pretty excited about this race.
People familiar with New York: Can anyone recommend a casual place to pick up lunch in the vicinity of the Port Authority Bus Terminal or the Javits Center?
Ladurée sometime during the weekend to get macarons. When we were in Indonesia, the Canadian couple on the boat had stopped over in London on their way to Indonesia and picked up macarons from the Ladurée in Harrod's. They are the best things on earth, and NYC is the location of the only Ladurée shop in the US. I'm so going. I plan to buy a box and then dream of them as motivation during the race.
Since I've been ending all of these with a video, here are some last minute tips, both for NYC and for Marine Corps Marathon runners next weekend (and any marathon!!)...
