One day to go…

Hi there,

One might perceive the lack of updates as a time of lethargy and leisure. Do not be fooled. Andy and I are super busy. Between getting in two 8+ mile runs a week plus 2 shorter ones, longer ones on the weekends, planning and coordinating for the benefit show (see below for what all our hard work’s done), stints in Austin at SXSW, eBay projects at work, healing injuries and house hunting–it’s been quite a month!

The cool news: Check out the Boston Phoenix for our event in the 8 Days a Week (best upcoming events) and a tiny blurb on top of page 12 today in the Boston Metro. We also had an article last Friday in the Boston Globe (He’s Rocking and Running for a Cause–in which I was strategically cropped out, but I understand the journalistic integrity of not diluting the story w/ my picture 🙂 ).

Tomorrow is going to be awesome. Andy and I worked our butts off. Almost literally. We followed up with numerous media people and donors to the point of the most sincere and kindest harassment. Thank you!

This event is huge for Andy and I. The support of the community and friends and family is amazing. We’re truly excited about goal of raising $4K tomorrow. We think it’s possible. We have a great list of prizes and an awesome line up of musicians.

I’m particularly excited because Jack Fultz (the 1976 Boston Marathon champ and our coach) bought tickets to our event today! We’ll have two awesome athletes at our show (Lyndon Byers (LB) from the Bruins will also be making an appearance).  It’s surly to be a night to “rock your socks off”–lame, so what?

It’s less than 4 weeks to the marathon. Andy and I are almost at our $10K goal. I”m about $700 shy of my $5K goal. The benefit show is sure to make meeting that goal a reality.

Again, one final thanks to all our sponsors and a special thanks to: PUMA(‘s been super cool), Sam Adams (HOOKED us up) and Lauren and her mom for pulling together gift baskets!

thanks!

If you can’t make it, we’ll let you know how it goes.

WBCN’s Boston Emissions with Anngelle was awesome to have us on Sunday night. We chatted about the benefit, the cause and all the great prizes!

Look for a column on Saturday in the Boston Globe. We had a mini-photo shoot last Saturday while we were on our 18 mile run. The article should be in the music/arts section 🙂

If you happen to browse through the Improper Bostonian this week you’ll find our Rock N’ Run Benefit in the calendar listing.

We’re pumped for the event–we need your support make it a success! Check out the Rockin’ Tab on the top of the page for more details about the event.

That’s it for now.

PUMA ROCKS

They are donating two pairs of kick-ass shoes to Andy and me and TWO pairs as prizes.

Thanks Paul 🙂

A cool 16

Andy and I ran 16 miles on Saturday! It was a trying run through the hills on the marathon course. Heartbreak hill sure feels bad at mile 11. Can’t wait to see how it feels at mile 20. We did the run at our usual pace–10 minute miles. Which, I think in this case is pretty good. By the end of the run, we were praying for downhills and gatorade.

Andy did an awesome job 🙂 Next weekend we do 18.

That’s it for now. Back to work and watching the dying blizzard outside.
