Cheer Us On, Part 2 – 6 October

Oct 6, 2013   //   by Karen Lopez   //   Blog, Fun, Need Your Help  //  No Comments

Sunday Yanni Robel (@yannirobel). Rob (@projmgr) and I (@datachick) will be running the Portland Marathon. Yanni has done so many I can’t keep track.

Tonight we did the pasta dinner are now hoping to get a good sleep.

This is my second full marathon and Rob’s first. So this is where you can help. We all us Runmeter, an app that will not only track and tweet our progress, it will also read your tweets and Facebook posts to us as we run.

Today Yanni showed me she had selected a sexy French voice to read your messages. Just so you know.

I can’t even begin to explain how much hearing your support helps during a race.

You don’t have to install anything. All you have to do is tweet at us. There are just a few things you need to know:

– We can only hear tweets directly tweeted to us, with our twitter IDs right at the beginning of the tweet.

– That means that you will need three separate tweets to talk to all of us. If you mention more than one of us, only the first person will hear the tweet.

– We won’t hear retweets.

– We will probably set our apps to tweet our progress every 2 miles or so. If you reply to those, we will hear your tweet.

– You don’t have to include anything else in the tweet. No need for the Runmeter ID or a hashtag.

– We won’t hear DMs or private messages.

– Status updates also go to our Facebook walls. You can also talk to us there, too.

– I am slow. I will take more than 6 hours to finish. You can sleep in and still help.

– Our corral will probably start at 7:15 -7:30 or so AM PDT. But you don’t have to cheer us only as we start. Messages later are appreciated a lot.

I hope you can help us along the way. Even if you can’t, sending good vibes are also appreciated.

And thank you to all of you who supported us during our training runs.

See you on the other side of 26.2 miles. Upright and smiling.
