I just want to wish *everyone* running the 
2010 ING New York City Marathon the

*best* of luck!!



I know a few people who are running it, such as the ever so lovely and supportive Melanie (@Mpkann) and of course the killer fabulous Skinny Runner.  Also a woman named Claire who runs an amazing blog called Will Run For Beer will be running it too.  I’m not sure if she knows of my existence, but I’m pretty sure we were separated at birth. 

And well there are about 1000 other people I follow on Twitter who are running so this shout-out goes out to them all!!   

I am so proud of all of them and I cannot wait to hear all about their experiences.

Maybe it’s just because I’m from New York (the state, not the city) but running the New York City Marathon to me is way cooler than running the Boston Marathon.  Not to knock the Boston Marathon…just saying…I get way more excited for this race.  My local NBC station will be showing highlights from 2-4 PM tomorrow so I plan on being glued to the TV…even though honestly, watching people run is pretty damn boring LOL.  But I’ll try to watch the highlights.

BUT for those of us not fortunate enough to be running the NYC marathon, remember that tomorrow is World Run Day!!


So in the spirit of the race and of the day, get out there (or on there if you will be treadmilling it) and pound out a couple miles!!



  1. I get more excited about the NYC marathon, too. And you would think Boston would mean more to me, right? Haha.

    My friend Kelly is running tomorrow and I couldn't be more proud of her!! I can't wait to hear all about it!! I am running tomorrow if it KILLS ME!

    RUN, RUN, RUN!!

  2. congrats on 90 pounds. your progress picks look great. I am starting out trying to get back into running from about 7 years ago...thanks for the tips.

  3. I moved to Greenpoint in 2005 and only started cheering for/watching the marathon in 2007 (it literally runs right through my neighborhood). I get more excited for it every year. I start by watching it on TV, getting ready for the elite women's pack to hit Park Slope. When they do, I head out on my bike to Williamsburg to see them come through. It's SO EXCITING! The anticipation, the waiting, then the police lights come into sight and you know Paula Radcliffe is right behind them. I fucking love it! I end up watching from a few points for HOURS. Literally hours, I watch the runners, cheer them on, take pics. It's so amazing - the never ending sea of people. I can't wait for tomorrow!

  4. I sat down and watched the televised parts in sheer amazement. Would have been amazing just to spectate.

  5. Hahaha, we ARE separated at birth! Thanks so much for the well-wishes. Sunday was awesome - it should be illegal to have that much fun running a marathon. And don't you worry; I certainly celebrated with a couple of cold ones afterward. Hope the TV highlights did it justice.
