I didn’t think it was possible, but I’ve sustained this “I’m so excited I could barf” feeling for several days now. The suspense is terrible… I hope it lasts (name that movie).
On Sunday I headed out to get my iron-on letters and marathon shirt for the big day. I stopped at Lee’s Art Shop on 57th for the letters (and met a few other marathoners doing the same exact thing, haha). Then I headed to Nike to pick up my race shirt, which actually turned out to be 2 shirts. I’m wearing a thin long-sleeve with a thin short-sleeve on top.
Marathon week really is one of the best weeks in the city. I know I’m biased, but I thought that even before I ever ran it. The excitement is palpable. Even in the subway stations. Here are some pics from Columbus Circle.
Which one is your favorite? What do you love to see marathon week?
