Ten A.M.


Hey, everybody, check out my poor-quality Photobooth picture, taken in my drab hotel room with its spinach-colored walls. I'm getting ready to leave the hotel, grab a nutritious jelly-filled breakfast, then get on the bus that takes us the 26 (.2) miles to Hopkinton.

Yesterday morning when I was trying to find my Red Sox hat, I emptied out my bag and realized that it was on my kitchen table, along with my sunglasses, my gloves, and my FAVORITE MARATHON SHIRT. I spent a chunk of my Sunday morning trying to have one commissioned because I insist on wearing my name across my sternum and while this is a less-than-awesome replacement, it gets the job done.

Other than that, I'm set. I just groomed my eyebrows which probably cut down on my wind resistance, making me sleek and aerodynamic like a seal's head.

See you guys this afternoon. I'll be the one weeping and dragging herself down the sidewalk on her hands.

Good luck! Rock those miles like they were the beat and you were the Bomfunk MCs!

Um, I missed the last couple posts, but I'm assuming, from context clues I picked up in this one (a skill I have from years and years of training in the art of "teh close read"), that you're running a marathon?

In which case, good luck!

But if this is one of your in-jokes that I didn't get because I didn't read those earlier posts ...

I'm going back now to make sure.

Glad you're dealing with the brows. Most runners forget this. I'm sure it will be the deciding factor in your winning time!

Good luck!

Good luck! You will do great! Wish I were there to see your awesome shirt in person and hold a sign with Hugh Laurie's face saying, "GO J-Money!" on it.

Good luck!

Untrimmed eyebrows cost Alevtina Biktimirova the 2008 Boston Marathon.

FACT.

We it's the afternoon and I haven't heard of any 29 year olds dropping over during the race.

Go, J-Money, Go!!!

Yay for J-Money!

I can't even run 2 kms without wanting to die so you are a legend in my lunchbox :)

ps: How come you took your name off the blog and reverted to 'Hi I'm J-Money'...just curious.

Bridget said...

I am sure you were fantastic! By the way, I LOVED the "Do it for Twitter" touch.

Now you probably think I am a stalker. I am not. I just like funny blogs and tweets. So thank you :)

Mia said...

Where did you get the nickname J-Money? (The 'J' part is obvious but...)

Writers Block said...

Good Luck - My Wife's doing the London Marathon this weekend - had me up all last night helping her make a Tutu...

Well, you finished it you crazy crazy girl. Now we can't wait to hear your take on it.

I'm in awe of anyone who can run so far. I can barely make it through a 5k. Congrats.
Also, that old lady with the poop horn on the side of your page is really freaking me out.

IRJessica said...

Oooooh- I can't wait to read your follow up!
