Thank you so much for all the support everyone has shown me over the last few months. Many of you have asked me for my number; it's 29224, or you can search my name: Morrison, Miriam E. if you want to check up on my progress. Which will be SLOW.

I'm pretty much the luckiest runner in the whole Boston Marathon. I walked into school on Friday to see a huge "Go, Ms. Morrison!" mural in the hallway and my entire classroom plastered with posters made by my second graders. I was very, very touched. Many of the posters said things like, "I hope you win the marathon!" These twenty-four eight year olds make up the best fan club anyone could ever hope for. Although I am about to really disappoint the kids who are hoping I win it, their belief in me is very encouraging. I guess I really have to finish it now.

You may be totally sick of hearing me talk, cry, obsess (fill in the verb) about the marathon. You were all very kind to listen to my long run horror stories, and you were always encouraging and affirming and managed to not let me see your eyes glaze over while I yammered on about all things marathon. Thank you so much.

If you're going to be out there in the rain (why, God, why???), I would tell you what I'll be wearing, but decisiveness has never been my strong point. As I can't settle on what to order for dinner at a restaurant without seeing the whites of the waitress' eyes, there's no way I can commit to an outfit twenty-four hours before the gun goes off. Even though I spent over three hundred dollars on gear at the Expo yesterday.

In any case, it was very nice of many of you to say that you'll be out there cheering me on. Just know that I won't hold you to it unless you are related to me by blood or marriage. Let's face it; it's going to be a loooonnng day.

Thank you again for encouraging and supporting me.
