Hold on to your hats...and other complete randomness

Hold on to your hats's marathon weekend!

I am legitimately bouncing off the walls today because 
1) it's Friday 
2) It's Marathon Weekend 
3) I'm pretty sure I put my sassy pants on this morning [Thanks Beth for the idea...]
4) I have already had a TON of coffee today

So here's some complete randomness for you... in numbered format, because I flipping feel like it.

1. Thank you for putting up with me during taper- I have worked very hard for this race, and have big goals....when something is important to you, you make it a priority and no one or nothing should make you feel bad about it. Read: I don't feel bad for the taper crazies I have had- it's part of the process.

2. The Bills couldn't get keep their mojo flowing from Sunday's win...and we lost to the Browns last night- What does this mean for me? I lost a friggin bet with Brian and now have to write "GO BROWNS" on my calf on Sunday. Public humiliation at it's finest, might as well put me in the stocks for the whole world to see.

3. As for this weekend, I will be doing packet pickup tomorrow afternoon after checking into my hotel. Shoot me an email if you are going to be around and going tomorrow afternoon. Already planning on trying to meet up with a few people! Sunday I will be taking shuttle around 6/6:15 from finish to start line, so if you wanna be rebels and sit in the back of the bus with me...I'm game.

4. For those of you who want to stalk me support me from afar by tracking me, I have my splits set to post automatically to my twitter feed, and on my personal Facebook page. I assume there will be start split, half split, and finish- beyond that I am not sure. If all the sudden you see my splits go wayyyy slower, please stop paying attention and bring a bus and run me over. THANKS!

5. My playlist is overflowing, but please still send me any ideas for awesome songs to jam to- I'm always accepting new tunes to get busted singing and dancing to.

6. I'm excited for the marathon to be over (kind of) because I plan on having Fiona (my bike) on the rollers a few nights a week while watching Breaking Bad on Netflix so I can see what all the Hooplah is all about. Yes I have never seen the show, not even once. 

7. My nephew turned 6 months old the other day, where the hell has time gone. I feel like just yesterday he was in my arms at the hospital, making me instantly fall in love with him. 

8. Random Fact: Every Friday when I grab the Wall Street Journal at my office, it still amazes me that there is a "Mansion" Section. Are you effing kidding me? Our Government is shut down, yet we still have a section of a huge paper about big expensive houses and things to make them bigger and better? Even before the shut down this baffled me. 

9. I'd really like to discuss where this year went. Any ideas?

10. It's Fridayyyyyyyyy, enjoy your weekend! What fun things do you have planned? Anyone else racing?

11. I had to edit and add this...I have to say I am incredibly proud of my Alma Mater--I'm not surprised in the least about how much they care....please take a second to read this
