Boston Marathon Expo – cover of Runner’s World Magazine

It feels surreal. I’m here in Boston with tens of thousands of other runners. It’s vibrant. It’s exciting. It’s crowded. It’s perfect!

At the convention center today, I picked up my bib (number 15010) and shopped and shopped. I have lots and lots of stuff with the official Boston Marathon unicorn mark on it. The expo is the best one I have been to so far. The official sponsor (adidas) happens to be one of my favorite brands; hence I now have a visor, t-shirt and a long-sleeve shirt with the official Boston Marathon logo. I already had a track-top and bottom before I came to Boston. I also bought the limited-edition Boston Marathon Saucony Kinvara 6 shoes!

We had fun at the expo spending a ton of time and money doing silly things like this Runner’s World cover shot. As you can see, I’m all smiles and look forward the race. I don’t care if there are 20MPH headwinds predicted with cold and rainy weather. It’s Boston and I am here!

I went for a quick run this afternoon on crowded Boston streets with all kinds of traffic. It is cold and windy, but it felt good to run! My heartrate is revving a bit higher than I expected, but I don’t care. I am going to enjoy the run on Monday without paying much heed to speed or pace or heartrate. I’m here to have fun and nothing will stop me now!
