|I have dropped 1 hour 47 minutes and 20 lbs since that marathon...|

Any way you look at it -- Boston is only a few days away!!!!
Next Monday, to be exact. Patriot's Day which has a whole different meaning to marathon runners.
While to many accomplished runners, this may be just another race, it is not to me. Boston is something I have worked hard for and I want to enjoy it as best I can. Finish strong and with a smile on my face! While elite runners run it to win it, I am running it for the experience of it - from start to finish.
That being said, I made it a point to get to run club this week for the Boston send off, and I am glad I did.
Some of you may have noticed I have been sparse on my photos lately and, even more so, when I am racing. I don't intend to be this time around, so I had to try out my new belt that will house my camera while I run on Monday.
The actual run part of this run served two-purpose:
(1) Run out the nerves with Heather.
(2) Practice my running/picture-taking abilities with my new belt.
|Not there yet, needs work.|
Back to the story, then it was time for the Boston send off. I am so happy to be part of the Runner's Roost community cuz they get it and the fact that all of us had worked hard and they wanted to appreciate it, so we all ventured downstairs.

So, after months of planning, my bags are packed, the kids are juiced (more for the trip than my race, but I will take whatever excitement I can get out of them) and we are off to the airport in 2 hours time.
I CAN'T WAIT!!!!
