Last year I wrote a post in honor of some of the blogger-runner friends that were headed to Boston. It is here.
I want to continue in this tradition and wish some of the people I follow all the best for this iconic race. I know some of you are leaving soon so here I go:
Super mom Erin! This fantastic gal has 12 kids. She is also featured in this month's Runner's World. Her BQ story here. Well I should say her first BQ. She managed to do that 3 more times after that !!! Go Erin!!!
Amanda: You will do great. I know you will. Stop worrying... right now. No I mean it! You did all the work now you need to let go and enjoy your race! Wishing you 26.2 happy miles!
Last year my warrior Boston runner was Beth. This year it is Amanda. The Comeback runner. Amanda: You have all my admiration and I am so happy you made it through your training and that Monday you will be at the starting line in Boston!
A fellow Canadian. This may be my favorite running picture. Look at her face. I want to cross the finish line looking like that just once! This is the day she got her BQ! You can read about it here. Marlene I hope you get to live the FULL Boston experience! Enjoy it!
Super crazy talented! Look at these muscles!!! She has a super interesting section on her blog about how she trains, it is all there in 6 detailed sections. I predict a sub 3:05 maybe even sub 3:00 for this speedy lady!
I want to wish all of you all the best for the Boston Marathon. I hope that you will all be smiling as you cross that finish line! Looking forward to read all the stories you will bring back from Boston!
These come from an interesting article I found online:

*** For those of you who asked about my last race and the "celebrities"...well I did not see any! Turns out we did not need to be lectured about "Celebrity Etiquette" after all!! :)
