runemz "part one" out of 44

okay.

So I hate greatly dislike "part" posts. [part one, part two, blah blah blah] but there really is no other way unless you want to read a post for 45 minutes.  And trust me you don't.

The "event" really started for me on Thursday afternoon . . . . when the treadmills were delivered [from Athlete's Performance].  It felt like Christmas day.  Then it came in . . .  the photo of my [heee hee]Woodway Treadmills.  [you can check them out on Facebook here, oh and feel free to mention to them how you think I should get one for half price while you are at it. ;) ]

Next off to pick up Dawn - awesome.  Did I mention she realized this was "outside" on Thursday night at 9pm?!  hilarious.  Sunscreen anyone?!

Then I got an email from an amazing blogger which yep, sent me into tears. [shocking, I know] but the most awesome email ever.

this.
is
why
I'm
running.

emails like this.  stories like hers.

a w e s o m e.

in bed by 9:40. . . . alseep by 10:30. . . .awake at 2:00am

ya, not great but I'll take it.
The alarm was set for 3:30 anyway.

interesting facts:

nerves on a scale of 1-10 . . . . 1.4
hunger scale 1-10 . . . . 0.4
Let's get this freaking run started scale 1-10 . . . . 44.

Got a shower - ya, it was going to be a while until my next one.
brushed teeth - ditto from above
got dressed - thanks Vemma!
got Jesus [prayer time] ;)
got 1/2 a bagel down
got 1/2 pickle juice down
brushed teeth again - ya forgot about the needed to eat thing.
got my PRR bag packed, thanks Ron!
got in the car.
Checked phone. . .

Time read:

4:44

awwwww. heck. freaking. ya.  this was sooo going to be my day.

We arrived. 
Escorted to the "green room" --- ya, I just like saying that.  "green room"

where Dawn got this little photo of me and my Peanut looking tired but ready!

Only spent a few minutes in the green room [wink wink].  I didn't even get a chance to look in cupboards or steal take free sample sachets of sugar.

next. the. walk. through. the. studio.

I so love that Dawn took this photo.  It was a fun moment.  Chatting with the news people about the "RUN EMZ" shirts.  Scott Light, he was awesome.

SL:  hey you really running for 24?
Me: naaaaa just thought it'd get me on TV.
[weird pause]
Me:  yes, I cannot freaking wait.
[weird pause....did she just say "freaking"?]
SL: love the shirts.  who designed those?
Me:  Patrick [then I go on about him being a blogger, his blog name, that I met him in Boston,

, what kind of bike he rides, his shoe size and one day the design for the RUNEMZ shirt was in my email inbox]
SL:  very cool.  I'm going to run with you today!
Me:  awww heck ya!  Can't wait!

Set-up time . . . .

Ya. baby. the "RunEmz.com" sign.  Thank you DAN!!

And yep, my parents, they rock.

not only was my mom [and my sister "happy"] my "manager", my go to in good and bad, my best cheerleader . . . .they also stayed the whole freaking night.  Yep, all twenty-freaking-four hours.

We got the AC units going.  All thanks to one "Randy" [this man is a one man show, he does it all]

Treadmills were leveled.  I got my laugh on with my main man "Jay" [camera guy].  This man was awesome.  Felt right at home.

okay now I'm cold.
Nervous cold?!

Enter Medical team [the freaking awesom-est ever . . DeRosa Medical]

bring out the snu.......ggie?!  What?!

fine I'll show you the photo.

Snug-a-licious.

I'm. a. believer!

Ya, I've got my "run emz" bracelet on.  I hear they are going for $4.44 on eBay.  Maybe that was in pesos, can't remember.

One last "I'm a nerd" photo . . .


then
it
was
time.

time for that 24 hour clock to start and start counting down . . .


time to run.
time to raise money.
time for the training to be put to use.
time for Sojourner.

Chris K said...

Wait, that's it?! You're gonna keep us hanging for Part 2? How am I going to be able to sleep tonight not know how this turns out? Did "You. freaking.get.this"? C'mon EMZ. I demand Part 2 immediately.

Oh never mind. Of course you.freaking.got.that. You are EMZ. Are you finally going to profess to being an Alien?

Julie said...

Yep, sometimes there is just too much good stuff to share in one post.
I love the snuggie! However, it looks much more luxurious than mine at home.

Can't wait to hear the rest!

Behind the scenes of the EMZ-100 - love it! I know how the story ends and I still feel the drama building. Keep 'em coming.

Fantastic! You will never know how much you inspired me with this run. I'm busy thinking and making plans as I type this. Some crazy charity run will just have to happen. All thanks to EMZ.
