Tomorrow is race day. I can’t believe the sixteen weeks of training has come to a finish. It was a long time to train and I’m ready for the big finale!
This afternoon’s adventure at the expo in the Philadelphia Convention Center was fun. My friend Lindsey met up with me and before grabbing lunch we explored the wonderment that is the marathon expo.
My “star-struck” moment of the day was meeting Bart Yasso, Chief Running Officer of Runner’s World’s. I’d like a job with that title! He was promoting his book and while we were chatting I looked next to him and spotted Hal Higdon, author and Runner’s World writer, most well-known for his training plans. Yasso also is one of the announcers at tomorrow’s race. I was pretty pumped to meet these icons in the world of running. And of course I put a plug-in for the blog.
