Hey, just a short little post right now, to let you know how much time I have, where I am, where I’m going, what’s going on, t’d what’s coming up in the near future.
Where I Am and Where I’m Going
I’m on a plane, somewhere between SLC and NYC. From there, we’ll transfer to a plane to Boston. Once we’re in Boston, we’re going to meet up with some Team Fatty friends and go see historical stuff for a couple days.
Then, on Monday, we’re going to “run” the Boston Marathon.
To be honest, that’s the only part of this trip I’m not looking forward to. Because as someone who has never been a good runner, I think I can nevertheless claim that my running has become worse and worse lately. My right knee hurts when I run. So does my left hip. So does my right Achilles tendon. So does my back.
I feel very bad for The Hammer, who is in incredible shape — the best shape she’s ever been in — for this race. She could lap me. She really could. But she’s not going to. She’s going to do this thing with me.
And then in a couple weeks she’ll do a different marathon for speed.
How Much Time I Have
I don’t have much time to write this post. My computer battery was at 36% when I started writing; now it’s at 29%. I will update with current amounts of available current as events warrant.
What’s Going On
I spent the first 65% of my computer battery sending email to people. Admittedly, the battery in my computer is old, so 65% doesn’t actually represent that much time.
Still, I’ve been nailing down sponsors for the 100 Miles of Nowhere. And talking with Twin Six about the T-shirt design. And I can say this: it’s a great set of sponsors, donating a nice array of swag, for an excellent cause.
And the t-shirt design is wonderful. The best 100MoN design yet. I love it. You will love it too.
I will announce the sponsors and open registration next Wednesday. You’ll definitely want to register that day, because I’m pretty sure it will sell out before the day ends. And there will be no second wave. When it sells out, it’s gone.
Oh, by the way, my battery is now at 18%.
What About the Weight Challenge?
I will set up the area for final weigh-in posts tomorrow and post a link to it here. Be sure to post your final weigh-in by Monday morning, OK?
What’s Coming Up in the Near Future?
Well, if you’re a fan of BikeSnobNYC, you’ll want to check back here this Thursday; I’ll be posting a review of his new book that day.
Then, at 1PM ET that same day (i.e., Thursday, for those of you with very short attention spans), BSNYC’s going to join us for a live Q&A session. It’ll be fun, or immensely awkward, depending on what he thinks of my review.
I’m now at 11%, battery-wise.
While In Boston
There’s a good chance I’ll be posting little mini-updates here during my Boston trip. There’s an even better chance that I’ll post stuff on Twitter. So, if you haven’t yet, maybe you should follow me.
7% battery. Posting now, while I still can.
