Interim Post

Aaron left a hilarious comment that reminded me I’d forgotten to post afterward. “OK, creepy, I know, but I needed to see how she did, so I worked my way through the results until I found a Laura from New York… :) Time (4:48:39)(if that’s you) looks good to me with all the travel and drinking. Hope you’re happy with it!!”

I was about to write a response back to him, but figured I’d post it publicly and thereby gain another day or two of procrastination on my race report. First response to his comment: HAHAHA! I’ve totally searched results before for my running blogging friends and always been too scared to admit it for fear people would think I was a stalker. For anyone else out there, it’s time to come out of the closet – we all do it, and it’s exactly what the blogger deserves for not providing an update themselves! :) Anyway, I’m sorry to keep you all in such suspense about how the marathon went. Yeah, I’ve been MIA, but come on, I was in Hawaii! I really can’t say enough about what paradise it was for Boyfriend and I. Seriously, THE most romantic and relaxing place on earth.

Anyway, the answer to how the marathon went? It went. I came in with one of my worst times, but the weather was pretty nasty so I’ll blame that. In truth, there was some laziness on my part too… but that’s a story for my forthcoming race report where I’ll be honest and admit to my sloth. For now, I’m calling shenanigans on the tropical-storm-like-rain and hot sun (yes, there was both).

Though the race wasn’t my best, after the race came the best vacation I’ve ever had. It wasn’t all that sunny (in fact, it rained a lot), we didn’t really do any sightseeing (unless you count going to California Pizza Kitchen not just once but twice), and we spent a lot of time just lying around reading and catching up on back episodes of House/Grey’s Anatomy (Boyfriend thinks he’s now qualified to be a doctor). But it was sheer bliss. Best part: two hour ridiculously strong massage on Tuesday night before we left for just $90.

More to come, probably tomorrow when NYC gets hit with a ridiculous snowstorm and the power goes out and no one else can go online to work except for me because I have a super duper 6 hour battery on my laptop. (We’ve been getting e-mailed warnings about that all day).


  1. I, too, have looked up race reports for blogger/runners & felt like a stalker! Glad I’m not the only one.

    I’m glad you enjoyed your vacation.

  2. Glad the vacay went well.

    I’ve totally looked up bloggers/podcasters before. What can I say, I’m a stalker…at least a friendly one =).

  3. i am also a stalker – i admit it :)

    soooo glad you guys had a wonderful time… isnt hawaii the BEST?!? next time you guys need to go to maui!

  4. Congrats and I’m glad you had such a wonderful, relaxing time. From reading your previous posts, I can tell you deserved it. Yes, I’m waiting for the 6 to 12 inches of snow to arrive here in CT also. That will put a damper on the running for a few days, won’t it?!

  5. I’m a total stalker. There’s no shame…

    And I love CPK! Reminds me I need to go there again ;) Glad you had a great vacation around your marathon!
