Interesting last few days. We launched our new race, the MR8K, which will be held on Labor Day starting outside the TD Garden and finishing INSIDE the TD Garden. We have received tons of support from the City of Boston, the TD Garden, and the Boston Bruins Foundation. Registration is now open at www.tdgarden.com/mr8k. With this race, DMSE Sports is now putting on races in Fenway Park, Gillette Stadium, and now the TD Garden. Pretty cool…maybe a series someday connecting all three??!! Neat to kick things off with Bill Richard, Charlie Jacobs, Cam Neely, Bob Sweeney, and Amy Latimer.
And this weekend, I am in Cincinnati speaking at the 20th Flying Pig Marathon – today and tomorrow at 3pm at their expo. Last night they held “The Piggys”, similar to the Oscar’s and the ESPY’s. It was on live TV for an hour!! We all walked in on the PINK carpet (as opposed to the RED carpet!). I’ve never won an Oscar or Emmy or ESPY, but they awarded me with a “Piggy” last night…very honored to be one of the first recipients. Many thanks to Executive Director Iris Simpson Bush for her thoughtfulness. Lots of inspiring stories! Amazing event here – they did an incredible job. I had 5 TV interviews this morning alone and I will be doing the live TV commentary of the half marathon and marathon on Sunday morning. Running in the 1-mile race tonight and both the 5K and 10K on Saturday. Lot’s of fun here!! And, I love their poster, Dream Big and Fly High!!
