In case you missed it, it is now too late to register for the Birkie. Yup. Sorry. (Oh, you can raise money for JDRF and that will allow you in. Maybe.) So if you’re not in yet, you’re hosed. If you think you signed up, but you had that slight twinge of “maybe it got messed up somehow and I don’t remember” well, then, there is the opportunity to confirm your registration. Did I do that this afternoon? I most certainly did.
Now, there’s four-and-a-half months to get fast. If you live in Boston, Madison, San Francisco or Edmonton (for reals) you should check out November Project, because they run stairs, hills and do strength, and it’s a lot easier to run stairs with other people than on your own. If you live elsewhere, well, there’s no law against running hills at 6:30 a.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
