So is this the plan? Haven't seen anything on this thread for a few weeks.


Sorry. That sounded kinda pushy. Especially from someone whose never met any of you. Just getting a little freaky about this trip. First time and all. Taper has started and all I have to do for the next three weeks is get freaky.

Great, and I've gotta share a B&B with you Rolling Eyes

(Actually I was wondering if this was a done deal as well!)

Yes, it's a done deal. Cornelia was funny (and I think a little exasperated) by my email asking if I was still confirmed (although she had sent me a confirmation months ago). Her response was "You're confirmed, Ron - officially, definitely! Do you want me to re-send the formal confirmation?" Embarassed

I think I contacted her several times the first time we stayed there as well! Like you, I started getting nervous the closer we got. I'm sure she understands the first-timer "nervous nellies."

P.S. I was wondering if dinner at Bertucci's was a done deal, not you staying at the B&B!

Yes, Bertucci's is confirmed for 30 (really?! yikes!). Sorry I haven't been around, but here are the details.

Sunday, 4/17
6pm, reservation is under my name - Beth.
The restaurant is at 533 Comm Ave, right in Kenmore Square on the north side of the street. It's pretty hard to miss.

See you then!

Do we need nametags?

Name tags might not be a bad idea. I assume the 30 is based on the following list Judy compiled?

Quote:

EatDrinkRunWoman - yes
Matt - yes
Paul - plus one
Goober - yes
Lori - yes
MudQueen Sue G - plus three (Dan & 2 boys)
Cherie - plus family (7 total)
moi - yes (possibly plus one - roomie)
JimK - plus one
Autumn - plus one (Mike)
Phil Bush - yes
Beth - yes

Adding from Autumn's list:
Chin and Jessica
Shane Struefert
Doug Nichols
Susan (Lori's friend)


Looking forward to seeing everyone!

With 30 people, many of whom aren't regulars here, I'm not going to send out individual emails with details. PM me if you want my cell phone # or anything else not appropriate to post publicly.

As always, I'm happy to have on hand any special food, drink, etc. that you may be craving after 20 miles. Just let me know what you want.

If anyone wants a course tour, I'm not sure how much time I'll have, but we can probably fit something in. I don't have the minivan anymore, so I'm limited to 3-4 tourists.

Offers of course tours and special foods. Wow. Super generous. Looking forward to seeing you and the gang in a couple of weeks.

Sadly I have to retract the offer of special food. I can plant stuff for you if you'd like, but I can't stay. After my top 100 women are counted, I have to rush home as it turns out most of my company for dinner is arriving around 9am!

Bummer, Beth - I love having you at mile 20! It's always one of those goals/landmarks along the course.

And looky looky - I must win the prize for the highest bib number ever!
