Three Things Thursday

1. Due to the Laryngitis running is still off for the time being. Oh, joy! Needless to say that I'm not just grumpy, but also getting a bit restless now. Running is in my system, and not running makes my legs and the rest of my body...well, restless. And since I am a PM runner (full-time job with 8 AM start...so, I really don't have a choice), I have a lot of extra time in the evenings now. In the last couple of days I have had the privilige of having enough time to watch too many bad movies. 'Just Friends' with Ryan Reynolds last night was a new all time low...





2. I just know that I'm going to get lost in the New York Marathon Start Villages. I'm clumsy enough to make that happen. Don't believe me? Check out the Start Map by clicking on this link:

Believe me now? I will have to print that map and take it with me just to get to the start. I just hope that I will be able to find the 1.500 toilets they promised us on the New York Marathon website.

To all the New York Marathon runners: if you see a confused looking Redhead in a runningskirt walking around in the start villages; please tell her where the start line / toilets / food stations are.


3. How many days are left until the New York Marathon? Well, since you're asking:

LOL…that map is so complicated it jammed up my computer when I clicked on the link. I don’t even want to see it now. Good luck with that. Hopefully you have a Garmin to help you navigate.

I think you’re SO lucky to run that marathon. How’d you get in?
And as for peeing…I heard because it starts on the bridge…people just pee on the bridge. Jus’ sayin’.

@ Q: Nope...don't have a Garmin. My wrists are so tiny that I have to wear a Polar running watch. I blame Garmin for that. ;)

I registered through the international runners system. And peeing on the bridge? What the Beep!

I'm so jealous of NYC! Lots of photos - PLEASE!!!

Silly Girl Running said...

@ Emz: Promise! I have to warn you, though; I will probably look like a total goofball in all of them...
