Finished doing interviews at Cornell today, and I’m really pleased with the offers we’re going to make. Tomorrow it’s back to NYC where I get to see Boyfriend (YAY!) and go back to my regular work (boo). Hopefully the plane ride will enable me to finish my Portland race report, which is halfway done.
However, I won’t keep you in suspense any longer. You all knew I would be doing another marathon soon, and wanted to know when and where. The answer is… ING Hartford, this Saturday! On Sunday I have the Staten Island Half-Marathon so it’s going to be a 40 mile weekend for me… should be interesting and hopefully not (too) painful.
One thing about Hartford that cracks me up is their night-before-the-marathon event:
The Pasta Feast has been revamped for 2008. We are leaving the cooking to the experts.
Twenty of Hartford’s best restaurants open their kitchens early for runners and their families to enjoy delicious carbo-feasts. You choose the restaurant and the cuisine, and you make your own reservations.
So… I can call up any restaurant I want? And make a reservation? And pay the restaurant directly? Gee, thanks for going all-out for this pasta party! I’m especially surprised because after the race is supposed to be one of the best post-race food spreads in the country, so you would think they’d come up with something good before as well. Oh, well – still excited! My mom is coming that night for dinner and then to watch the next day, so it should be fun.
