NYC marathon.

as i mentioned on wednesday, i'll be watching the NYC marathon on sunday. my sister, meg, and i ran it in 2008 and it was one of the hardest things i've ever done but it was also one of the coolest things i've ever done. the experience of running through all 5 boroughs of new york city ... seeing all the people crowding along the streets, cheering for absolute strangers ... talking to fellow runners along the way ... being motivated by those runners (at one point when i was in pain, i looked over to see a guy with only one leg, running with a crutch and i thought - if he can do it, i can do it.) ... fighting through the pain to finish (while following meg who seemed to be in no pain at all!) ... it was amazing.

meg and me after the finish in 2008 ...

for any byrdie readers running on sunday - good luck!! and i highly suggest putting your name on your shirt so the crowds can cheer you on!!

p.s. LOVE this outfit ...

p.p.s. for some laughs ... these kids are hilarious!

and p.p.p.s. (sorry, the p's are getting out of control) one for inspiration (and possibly tears) ...

happy weekend!
