As many of you know, running the Boston Marathon has always been a goal of mine. I finally get to do it this year (3 and a half weeks!) and I am getting stoked. While I was waiting for the start of my second marathon back in 2004, I ran into a guy who, by the look of his jacket, had obviously run Boston before. That jacket was super cool, and I told myself then that when I run Boston, I want to get a jacket like that. So for my birthday, I ordered a sweet-looking number from Adidas. Well, I got that jacket today, and in the words of a second-grader I came across the other day at work, it's "tight." I love it! It's basically the coolest jacket I've ever seen. Sorry to be so gushing about it, but I really like it.
As if that wasn't enough, I also got my Boston Marathon Welcome Booklet and number pick up card (#5096). I pretty much read through the entire book.
Have I mentioned that I'm a little excited for this race?
