I think I’ve only jumped on the three things bandwagon (blogger buddy Morgan’s brainchild) a handful of times, but today I felt that I had to crank out some bullets. Two bullet posts, one week!? I’m on a roll!
First, don’t forget to check out my interview with elite runner Trisha Miller? She’s running Rock and roll AZ with me (or, maybe like 35 min in front of me) this weekend. She talks about training, how she’s cut 40 minutes off of her marathon time, poop, fueling, and poop. Did I mention poop?
Second, I can NOT tell you how excited I am to be running a marathon in the city I live in. It has been 2 years since I’ve done one at home. I’ll post about it ad-nauseam in the coming days, but I love how I can look forward to sleeping in my own bed, knowing where I need to go, and being able to sound smart when people are visiting. “Oh, you want to know where THAT is? Hmmmm. . . .Let me call my wife, I’ll bet she knows.”
In the United States, I’ve been told that there is no official live stream. However, I do know that NBC is going to be broadcasting 2 hours of delayed footage mid afternoon. Until then, check out these awesome videos of a few of the hopefuls training. Honestly, they’re just of people running. . . but they look like they’re jogging. . . . except their running 5:00/mile.
