Run, Run, Runner Girlies!!!

Today, my runner girlies and a couple of my other running buddies are running Nike Women's Half Marathon in San Francisco.  To say that I wish I were there to cheer them on is an understatement.

A year ago, we ran it together (well, at the same time anyway since I got separated)  This was us at the start line (really bad self-portrait):


This year, I am thankful for technology so I can feel like I'm there.  I can cheer them on through email and text.  I can check in through BBM.  Most of all, though, I can check in on them with the Nike Women's Live Updates site!  I LOVE THIS!!!

It tells me when they crossed the start line and what times they hit certain points on the course.  Unfortunately, it also tells me when they are struggling - but I have BBM to check in and provide support.

I may not be there in person to cheer form the sidelines (because it is soooo unlikely I would tackle those hills again anytime soon) - but this is a close second!

Run, Run - Runner Girlies! (the twinners lent me their pom poms for the occasion!)

  1. It's always good to be there for friends to cheer them on! Glad you got the next best thing. Wish I could find more P90X people to cheer me on!
