My parents are going...Kristin is going... My sister and her family are going... and they will be waiting for me at the finish line so I better at least make it there... I told my Dad to 'start' to look for me around 12:35pm or so...12:40pm more like it.
Considering the year I've had so far, I'll take faster than Baystate (my seed time) and can live with that, but barely. I'll be elated to be under 2:40. Absolutely elated. But seeing how I've felt lately, I'm not sure that can happen. Anything over 2:40 but under my seed time of 2:45 will be extremely disappointing but would be a PR, seeing Baystate was my only 26.2 mile run. Anything slower than my seed time will be humiliating, as I can't possibly think about running slower than I did at Baystate. I'm not a marathoner, but I know I can grunt out a run faster than what I did in Lowell in October.
Look for me bringin' up the rear with bib # 1367.
