it's official: this is my race number. because i am slow, i will be starting in the second wave of runners at 10:30 am. also because i am slow, my goal is a sub-5-hour race. but i'll really just be happy to finish! thank god my list didn't say "WIN the boston marathon."
also... in honor of my coach jack (see below, the dude in the flowered skirt), i've decided to run the marathon in my running skirt. unfortunately (for me), i'm pretty sure he has better legs.
