So-I was going to write a post here but I have total writer's block so thought I would share some pics from Boston for all you who are training for this AWESOME experience!
View from our hotel-The Hilton Back Bay. Awesome location and right next to the convention center. An easy walk to the buses race morning and back from the finish line (that is if you're not on a super high, completely disoriented and can't even remember what direction your hotel is -I know nothing about this of course!)
Number pickup at the Convention Center! I love race expos! I tried on like 49 pairs of shoes, 87 half zip pullovers, sampled about 400 nutrition bars and drinks and waited in line for an hour for some of the coveted Boston gear!
Me and Steve Jones at the Expo!
The infamous Boston jacket. I have no idea why I had a picture taken of my backside when I actually own the jacket and could just look at it whenever I want. Yeah...don't know about this one....
Me and my sister at the Expo. She also ran and finished in 3:24! We actually ran almost the first half of the race right next to each other entirely by chance! We didn't even plan to meet up and somehow ended up right next to each other. Too wierd.
Ahhh-Lululemon! Do NOT go in there-ha! This store makes me pay $100 for sweatpants......or in this case made my hubby pay $100 since he TOTALLY spoiled me this trip! Truthfully though, this stuff is awesome. I wore Lulu shorts in the race and pretty much LIVE in Lulu pants around the house (and also out to nice dinners with cowboy boots because I'm classy like that.....)
In front of Legal Seafoods in which I ate an EXORBITANT amount of pasta 2 nights before the race! Food in EXORBITANT amounts was the theme of this trip! See, I told you I'm classy!! I am wearing the same shirt that I wore to the Expo for dinner! Just pulled my hair out of the ponytail and good to go!!
Sara Hall amongst others in the mile races the day before the marathon. These races are a MUST. I had an absolute blast watching the 5K (Joe ran) and the mile races! So inspiring and just a great part of the whole experience!
Joe finishing the 5K!
Race morning! No nerves hey! Truthfully my nerves were gone by this point. Excitement!!!
The buses on race morning! Quite an efficient system but a MASS of people!
Who is this skinny guy anyway??
Me right at the top of Heartbreak after I almost killed my husband for that handheld as all he cared about was getting this picture of me looking like I'm about to give birth!
Female winner! If you look closely I'm right behind her.....
Gotta love Meb!
See that blue finish line up there! What a glorious sight!!!
Friends made in Blogworld!
Great experience! Totally worth every drop of sweat you'll put into it!
Race report here and the week after here!
An actual post related to the present and not me just reliving the past coming soon!!
