Bucket List

As Frank did not run on Sunday, I’ll act as the “fake” Frank (“why yes that chianti was lovely with the lobster bisque!!”). In case anyone has forgotten, the marathon is this weekend. I have a lot of mixed feelings about this. Some include being nervous mixed with not quite dread. I mean it’s a hard run, man. But I know how good I’ll feel having completed the damn thing- yadda yadda yadda. Someone mentioned bucket list which I really don’t have this penciled in anywhere but certainly a great idea. I do have a bucket list for my old dog though. That list includes a drive through at McDonalds, a visit to the beach, an afternoon with the Kelly’s dog Daisy with the loose morals, and a night sleeping in the kids bed. Anyway I’ll be eating some pasta this week and trying to stay positive (and this is not a plea for a lot of phony “ah, you’ll do great!!” comments thanks anyway). I did do the El Torro roller coaster at 6 Flags over the weekend so if there was a bucket list that would be on it.

    Ah! You’ll do great! (And so will the rest of the Steamtown crew).

  2. As a matter of fact, I did run Sunday, just not in the morning, since I was tied up with work. While I would not have chosen Chianti to go with lobster bisque, it’s really a matter of personal preference, so I have no problem with that. I don’t have a bucket list either, but the list of things I want to do keeps expanding.

    I’m with Frank – I don’t have so much a bucket list, more of a to do list. Bucket list is too morbid for me!

    I said this to Frank the other night, but I know you will all do well becuase after every long run when I’ve asked you guys how you feel, you always respond positively. I know for my own training, that is the number one prediction of how I’ll perform. Good luck to you all. I can’t wait to hear how it goes!

  4. I agree with Michele. You guys always look and sound like you feel fine after the long Sunday runs. Good luck to all the Steamtowners! Looking forward to hearing all about it (and, most importantly, what you all eat the night before and pre-race).
