Graphic T-Shirt Friday: Obviously

Like there was any other choice for today.

I’m still crazy anxious, which is definitely weird for me, so I’m hoping I calm down once I get to Boston. I need some good sleep!

But mostly…I’m ready. I am ready for this race to happen. I’m ready to see all of the other cool tumblrs. I’m ready. 

If you WANT to take our relationship to the next level and let me invade your phone, I’m bib # 17886. You can text that to 345678 to sign up. Or sign up here. No pressure! I also have set up the alerts to be sent to tumblr so you can just check here to see what’s going on. 

I’m not taking my laptop so I’m not really going to be checking in a lot here. If you think you’ll absolutely need to get a hold of me this weekend, message me and we can figure that out.

That’s all folks. See you on the flipside.

Going through old posts

From the week before last year’s marathon. How things have NOT CHANGED AT ALL:

I also am feeling knee twinges which are throwing me in the OMG INJURY PIT OF DESPAIR. And my shoulder hurts. And OMG I AM NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO RUN A MARATHON.

Yep. Hi Ankle, how are we hanging?

So I’m making a list of things I want to do when I’m done training:

Use my rock climbing groupon

Trail running!

Spend more time strength training

….

Day drinking on lovely patios

Hell, let’s just say drinking in general

Visit a local vineyard

Cook and bake more/branch out with the foods I eat

Visit the farmers market 

Plant a garden

Pretty much the SAME LIST I HAVE RIGHT NOW. Spoiler alert: did none of these things. 

And my favorite:

Pretty much every “bad” food I’ve eaten this week has been in the name of carboloading: second piece of bread? Carboloading! Pizza? Carboloading! Entire basket of tortilla chips at happy hour? Carboloading! Chocolate Cookie? Damn straight that’s carboloading.

Boston Brunch?

malloryrunsthis:

I think we threw around the idea of meeting in Boston this weekend and since we’re getting close to the weekend, I thought we could possibly firm up some plans?

UPDATE: Obviously people can’t make one or the other but I think Saturday at 10:30am at Thornton’s is the winner! As I said, it’s a ten minute walk from the expo.

I AM SO EXCITED YOU GUYS.

Message me with questions :)

*note, there are TWO Thornton’s in Boston. This is the one on Huntington, NOT the one by Fenway.

For @oiselle, the three stages of  Mallory #tapertantrums: grumpy, nervous, and the “oh my God, what was I thinking?” moment. Not pictured: the incomparable joy of the finish.

Boston Brunch?

I think we threw around the idea of meeting in Boston this weekend and since we’re getting close to the weekend, I thought we could possibly firm up some plans?

How do people feel about doing a brunch at 11am  on Saturday? 

OR a late lunch! Sunday at 2pm? Only problem is that Easter is going to be a busy day.

I did some googling and Thornton’s Restaurant has good reviews and is a 10 minute walk from the Expo.

Thoughts? Reply here if you think you can make it and I’ll send you a message with my phone number so we can all kinda coordinate.

Also, I tagged everyone I could think of but I’m sure I missed people so reblog if you want or message me or whatever.

Where do you buy schwings!?

If you plan ahead, you can get them at http://www.shwingsonline.com/

If you’re me, and you decide 3 days before you go out of town that you need them, you go to Amazon and use Prime shipping.

I was planning on wearing my gold shwings on Monday. But I bought these as a back up. You know, in case of sudden shwing emergency….
