10,000 and a Video

Email from Rock N Roll Seattle with my Marathon number..

10,000

Weird right?? But also pretty cool. Even stranger Marlene, who I will be running with is #10,007.... We will be in Corral 10. It all feels so real once the race numbers are assigned. Rock N Roll Seattlers What is your race number and corral??

  • NATIONAL RUNNING DAY!
I was BUSY all day at work so a lunch run was not in the card....so when I got home i texted my buddy Janna for a night run... afterall I had to get in a run on National Running day. Janna was game so we headed out, cloud grey and busy roads. I could tell that Janna felt strong, I on the other hand was a bit slower from my 20 miler on Monday.

It was WONDERFUL to be with my buddy, we became pretty attached through Marathon training so it is weird going a week without seeing her for 2-4 hours. It was fun to talk about BOSTON plans....Janna Qualified at Capital City. SOOO awesome! We have a lot of time but it is still fun to talk about it. Thanks Janna!! Isn't she CUTE??


And for your viewing pleasure here is a VERY BAD Video of around 4.85 of our run.. I talk LOUD, turn down your volume... And dont mind the hard breathing...LOL!

HAPPY THURSDAY!!!

Currently I'm 27096, in the 27th corral. However, since I guessed a way too slow time (like an hour and a half too slow) I'll be moving up corrals big time!

Julie said...

Number 15 thousand something.....corral 15. I guessed the wrong time though and hopefully will change corrals at the expo!!

Denise said...

That is so bizarre! But SOMEONE has to get the crazy numbers, right?! At least you will never, ever forget your bib number!

Mel that was awesome! I loved the video. You know you don't sound at all like I thought you would. You sound like a kid. (I mean that in a good way) ...uhmmm, Meth lab???

That is a odd bib number but you will always remember when you were 10000!
