Below you will find an email I sent out to my friends and family regarding the BIG DAY – Boston! You all are my friends and family too…so here you go! (If you received the email…you can ignore. :))
As you know, Monday is the big day. God has truly me blessed me throughout this training season. I feel great! I have been running strong and I am ready. As my prayer warriors I ask you to first pray specifically that I glorify Him as I run…secondly that I run HIS race….thirdly that I stay true to my training and run my strategy. My goal (and I hope HIS) is to qualify under the new standards running a 3:45:00. My training has me right on track. Pray I run well and run smart. 🙂 Smart – starting slow…running negative splits…hydrating well…fueling well….I can do it! Yes, I can! 🙂
Our awesome computer guy at school has made it easy for you all to track me and follow us over the weekend. Below find the links to see pictures that we will upload throughout the weekend…tracking information on race day on the route as well as receiving text messages on my progress…you can meet the 2013 Team Hoyt runners as well as Team Hoyt’s story. It is pretty cool!! 🙂 Thanks, Matt!
Thanks for each of your never-ending support during this journey. Each one of you has touched me along the way and I would be amiss without saying THANKS!!!! Love to you all!
We leave Saturday morning and spend the day with Team Hoyt. We hope to get in a Red Sox game while I take it easy on Sunday. Monday race day and then back to the real world on Tuesday. 🙂
Thankful for each of you and for your prayers!! I love you all!!!
