‘Twas the Night Before the Boston Marathon

April 14, 2013

Ahhh!! This is it. Tomorrow’s the big day—the 2013 Boston Marathon.

My sister, Kristy, and I will be running our first Boston Marathon. This will my 5th marathon and her 2nd marathon. (Yes, she was one of those lucky people who qualified on her first try.)

The city is buzzing with excitement, and I hope it gives me the lift I need. I’m nervous and anxious and just want to start running.


Picture taken at the finish.

I am praying for a fun, some-what fast race, and no injuries!!

Don’t forget, if you want to follow my progress text RUNNER to 345678 and enter my bib number: 10107.


    1. How exciting! Lets hope you both have a great grace and avoid any injuries. Good luck!

    1. I’ll be watching and cheering from Florida!

    1. I’m so excited for you guys! Good luck!!! 🙂

    1. Thinking about you and your sister and hoping you’re safe!

    1. So glad to hear that you’re okay!! A voicemail from Amber I’m sure is one of many that you’ll have to listen to!! 🙂

    1. For those inquiring, Michelle and her family are safe. She finished the race and had moved out of the immediate area about 10 minutes before the bomb went off. I will let her add the details when she gets a chance to update her blog, but wanted to put your minds and hearts at ease. They are all ok – though many others were hurt. Thank you for your prayers for Michelle and her family!

      1. Thanks for posting this. I have spent the past couple hours on Facebook and e-mail responding the messages.

    1. Kristy, I don’t know you, but I’ve been reading your blog off and on for a couple of years. I thought of you today and I am glad to hear you are safe. Many prayers for you, your family, and everyone in Boston or connected to those in Boston today.

    1. Michelle,

      So proud of your accomplishment today and so thankful for your, Craig’s, and the rest of your family’s safety. Again, sending a giant hug your way!!!!

    1. Relieved that you are ok. Prayers for all involved.
