my first DNS

back in june i registered to run both the maine marathon (oct 3rd) and the mount desert island marathon (oct 17th) in hopes of becoming a marathon maniac. do you read runners world? you may have seen their recent article on how mdi was voted most scenic/best overall marathon. pretty sweet!

sadly i had gotten my dates mixed up on my calendar and two of my good friends were getting married on oct 16th which i wasnt going to miss. so, for the first time in my running career, i had a "DNS".

luckily registration opened up yesterday for next years marathon... im begging everyone i know (is there anyone i know that hasnt gotten married yet?) please plan your wedding accordingly, because im not missing this one again!

(funny story- i told ty last night "just letting you know, im signing up for this marathon again and im not gonna miss it.... so that means we cant get pregnant next year"... to which he replied... "do you want me to pay for your registration?" true love, folks!) :)

congrats to all runners this past weekend who ran mdi, bay state, and nike womens! also congrats to all boston qualifiers (seems like so many people BQ'd this weekend!).... hope you all got in yesterday within the crazy 8 hour sell out! ill be there for the 5k and somewhere along the marathon course volunteering!


  1. i had to miss MDI this year too :(
    next year though. yes, next year for MDI~
    as for Boston, I'll be on the sidelines cheering as well!!

  2. I have a wedding next June the same weekend as the Philly Triathlon. Kinda bumbed but it gives me an excuse to do another race that I have not done! Good Luck!

  3. I'M IN!!!!! please pack a bag lunch and lawn chair so you can wait a few hours for me at the finish line. k thanks!

  4. AWESOMENESS!!! See you there in MDI! I'll be volunteering and of course making jello shots :)
