On the road again!


I am off to Napa! The race number pick up is today only, so my run buddy and I are off to Napa! She is not running this time. She is just going to be part of my support team (my HUGE team of 2! LOL!) Very cool!

Alright, this is what I need from you guys. (You didn't think that you were just going to sit on your butts and laugh at the idiot that thought she could run a marathon did you? NOT!)

I need some serious positive vibes sent my way from 7:30 am to 11:30 am PST.

I have to make it to mile 17 by 11:30 or they pull me off the course. Which really means that I go to jail for assaulting the race official brave enough to try to remove me from the course. I don't look good in orange, so I need you to help a girl out.


I have decided that I will probably be at mile 12-13 around 10 am, therefore my life will seriously SUCK at that time and I will be considering pulling off the course for a Snickers and a trip to Taco Bell.

I would appreciate a collective RUN BITCH RUN! shout out at that time. (that is 11am MST, 12pm CST, and 1 pm EST , see I even got the local times for you!)

My life will suck at other times as well, but as long as I get past the 17 mile mark by 11:30, I will be allowed to finish.

Oh you are so going to get some good vibes from the midwest. Just lift your ear toward the East around that time and you will here Willie yelling for you. Oklahoma loves RBR! Go Bitch Go!

You have to do something for me, after the marathon when you are feeling great, I want you to drink a glass of Old Vine Zin for me! Have two if you want, hell you'll have earned it!

Woo Hoo Napa Bound!!! Go RBR!!! And you'll be getting a RUN BITCH RUN sent your way every 10 minutes! If I had your cell number I'd be calling you with RUN BITCH RUN!!! For I'll be sitting in my car at that point heading down to San Diego. Napa sounds so much nicer!!!

By the way orange is a great color-if you went to the University of Tennessee-yes our team colors are prison orange! But I don't think it would suit your skin tone!!! Do they have any other prison color jumpsuits? What ever happened to the black and white stripes-now those are HOT!

RUN BITCH RUN!

Sorry just preparing my shouts!

RUN BITCH RUN! Had to do it one more time so my neighbors think I'm yelling at the tv!!

Will you be running past a taco bell? It might give you a bit of indigestion if you decide to stop and inhale a taco at mile 13!!! I'd vote against it! Just keep running past the taco bell-but if you see BEER! Stop and take a swig!!! Beer and a marathon!!! Almost as good as chocolate truffles and wine!!!! Sorry I got sidetracked!!

RUN BITCH RUN!!!!

RUN BITCH RUN!!!

You will have a great time no matter what!!! I think you'll do alot better than you think you will! Just think you're in the Napa Marathon! How cool is that!!! VERY!!! My high school Biology teacher were never that cool!! You're a COOL HOT BIOLOGY TEACHER on her way up to Napa! Sweet!

Go get them woman!!!! I'll be thinking about you! I'll be up early if you want to call!!!

Ok I can't stand it! I know you are recovering and probably on your way home but HOW WAS IT?? I have thought of you all day so you should have gotten a great vibe from the East. I hope someone took lots of pictures of the hottie teacher from California running a marathon!!!
