My Bib for Boston
The time is here! I’m ready to hit the streets of Boston on Monday!
As much as it increases the nerves to know you’re all out there watching, here’s how to track me – My bib is 28581!:
- Mobile App – Download HERE (or by searching “Boston Marathon” in the app store)
- Text – Simply text any athlete’s bib number to 234567 using your U.S. mobile phone. You will then receive an SMS text response with instructions on how to submit a runner’s bib number. You will receive up to six texts per bib number. Message & data rates may apply. Text STOP to cancel.
Both will give you alerts/times at the following points on the course: 10K, Half-Marathon (13.1 miles), 30K, 35K, 40K, Finish. Please note, my start time is 11:15am, so don’t expect to see me too soon after Shalane! I’m aiming to finish around 3:15 to 3:30pm.
And for those of you on the course cheering, here’s what I’ll be wearing!!
If you can’t make it into town on Monday (namely, because you’re home watching my dogs – thanks Mom & Dad!) the race will be broadcast live on television nationally on the Universal Sports network and locally onWBZ-TV. The full Boston Marathon will also be streaming live online at http://watchlive.baa.org/.
Reminders: Patriots Day is also a holiday in Boston, which means FREE parking all day on Monday!
