Butterflies

One week until Boston! One year ago today I was getting packed up to run my second ever marathon! Getting ready to hopefully run a PR on a course that slightly terrified me-ha! I just read back over some emails I wrote to a close friend about this time last year and felt an overwhelming rush of emotion! Wow-I am truly SO excited for all the Boston runners out there! I will be PERMANENTLY glued to my computer chair next Monday virtually cheering for all of you and I'm currently working on my signs:)

A friend sent me a link to this commercial! I LOVE it! Hope you do too!

Butterflies...not really yet...But on Monday, I am sure they'll be there!

I had a junky recovery run today, (and cut it short) so I enjoyed looking at your stats =D.

It will feel great knowing you are watching my little person go across the screen. Thanks for all the tips. I am going to be checking your RR from last year as often as I can in the next 6 days- until I have it memorized.

The commercial reminds me of my Nothing Wrong With Having Butterflies post. Jon Bones Jones (UFC champ) said something like there's nothing wrong with having butterflies as long as you can get them to fly in formation. Love this commercial. Good luck on Take 2!

Ha ha, you crack me up. I love how I went to this link somewhat expecting a kick in the pants run but really knowing you better than that by now to expect more of you making fun of yourself.

Love this commercial! gave me chills.

How do I track people at Boston...teach me oh master. And I've really got to learn how to use my garmin because that was a cool chart you were able to get from your run!

Hey, Number 108... you look pretty durn badass in those pictures... really. I'd be afraid to race you if I were in your league. Awesome commercial! I hope the Boston runners get ideal conditions and all have a great time :)

Love the commercial! Yes, the excitement of Boston. Part of me is super happy I am not running this year!

Oh, my gosh...I was on Amanda's blog looking for a post with one of her awesome collages and saw your comment about your daughter repeating your shower explanation to someone at church. Thanks for the laugh! :)
