The last 2 years I have been ANXIOUS for Rock N Roll Seattle Marathon. Next weekend with be my Marathon Anniversary, Rock N Roll Seattle in 2009. It did not go at all how I expected, in fact it was pretty WET and Bleak, if you care to read about it go HERE. I am HONEST and tell it all, the good, bad and soggy. I FINISHED and became a Marathoner.
In 2010 I was a bit more relaxed but running 26.2 does not make me calm. I ran for Marathon for a Cure which was a GREAT experience!! We made it an event with Bloggers from all over. Bloggy Carb-night was a huge success!! Made lots of new Bloggy Buddies!! I table hopped, and I think drank out of 4 different water glasses. Next Friday night will be the Second Annual Event and I am SO EXCITED!!The Lovely Jill here has the most kick-a$$ mini van, we all met up for Carpool to the start, in our toss-away cuteness..
We also planned a Pre-Race Photo, this was super fun for those who were not able to make the dinner. Including the LOVELY Team in Training ladies. Meeting before the race helped us "know" people along the course, which is always FUN!!
Marlene and I had a BLAST considering we both felt like crap and had to stop multiple times for Honey Bucket Inspections :) Race Report HERE . My good Buddy Lynette was there to snap a few great pictures!!
We FINISHED and relaxed with Friends including Jill who had run her First Marathon and Steph HERE in town for 50 State WA style!! This year Kerrie HERE, Zoe HERE and Alma HERE will be tackling their FIRST MARATHON!! I will do the Half with Loads of buddies, then chill and run out to find our 26.2 pals. It is going to be a BLAST!!
SEATTLE ROCK N ROLL DETAILS:
- Friday Night Carbo-load Dinner: Please email me for details, all are welcome. If you did not get the Evite and would like to come let me know ASAP (tallmomontherun @ hotmail).
- Start Line: I will be in Corral 7. However a bunch of Bloggies will be meeting around Corral #6 30 minutes prior to the race start to get a photo op. If the race is set up the same way as last year Corral #6 should be close enough to get the start line in the background.
- Finish Line: The finish area is always a zoo. The Family Reunion areas are coded by letters. Although I do not plan to stay there too long, we can try for Family Reunion B, B for Blogger.
7 more Tomorrows to the next big FUN in Tall Mom land. What do you have coming up that you are excited about??
