It’s official—I picked up my NYC marathon number yesterday, F9621.
My friend Laila noted that it will be hard to cheer, since not much rhymes with F9621. Maybe “26.2 is along way to run, F9621…?”
I’ve been battling a bit of a niggle in my right leg, but thanks to Dr. Williams, the chiropractor my friend Kelley recommended, I should be ready to go. If you wan to track my progress, apparently on the marathon’s website (www.nycmarathon.org) you can enter F9621 and get my progress on a map. Or, if you’d like to have an email update sent to you every time I cross 5K (about 3 miles) let me know and I can sign you up for the email alert!
The marathon is on Sunday and starts at 10:10AM. For those who are in the NYC area, I would love to have any cheerers I can along the route!
I am going to take a camera with me while running (disposable—the camera, not the running) so hopefully I’ll have some pictures from the race posted. I did stroll through Central Park yesterday and saw the finish line, so I can have that vision in mind when the legs get sore (hopefully not in the first few miles).
Thanks again for all of the encouragement and support—and by the way, because of all of you I’ve raised over $4300 for lung cancer research—way to go!
