So you can tell me apart from the other 27,000 other runners

A few people have asked how to spot me on Monday.  Here is a picture of the planned outfit (note: depending on the weather, some things may change...The only guarantee is the singlet, the garmin, my shoes and probably the hat. I am hoping the sticky letters stay put.)  If it is colder, I'll have my capri on instead, and possibly a shirt under.  And if it warmer, the sleeves won't be there.  It's all coming with me to the start and I'll decide then. See...this is what I consume my thoughts with so I won't think about the 26 miles and 385 yards 

So here is a pic so you can tell me apart from the other 27,000 other runners.....

If you are on the course (or not) and want text alerts, you can text the word RUNNER to 345678 and then reply with my bib number 22474.   If you don't trust the text messages, I start at 10:40 and plan on running between a 9 and 10 minute mile.  Or at least that is the plan.  I know of people going to to be at mile 9, 12ish, 16ish, 17, 21, 25, the Pru and the finish. Feel free to comment with where you will be.  I will have my phone up until the start.

I will probably be running with my running buddy and my teammate, training partner, Kim, a tall blond (shoot I should have checked to see what she is wearing too!) and possibly a few others, Stephanie and Angela.  Hopefully that is enough information to spot me if you are on the course.

Full of hot cross buns, lots of support from all my family and friends and of course filled with some awesomely powerful prayers and support from First Church Somerville and now I am off to fill up on pasta at the Dana-Farber pasta party!

If I can sneak out of work I'll be after kenmore square near commonwealth. I guess that's mile 25ish? I'll keep an eye out!
