Greetings from Boston!
I’m having a blast so far and may never leave! This is our 4th trip up to Boston and each time I come back the city gets better and better.
We arrived around 11AM on Saturday and hit up the expo. I bought a ton of goodies (2 T-shirts and a sweatshirt to be exact) and loved just walking around and taking it all in. Matt enjoyed it too
On Saturday night, we had dinner with my parents, sister, and nephew. They are staying in Cambridge and have a ridiculous view of the city from their deck.
View at night…
Yesterday the B.A.A. allowed deferrals to 2013 because of the heat (first time ever). They urged runners who are inexperienced or not yet acclimated to the heat to not run and defer to 2013. I’m certainly not acclimated but there is nothing stopping me from running tomorrow.
I’m being safe about it though and my goal is to simply finish and not visit the medical tent. I dehydrate easily but I’m armed with salt tabs and straight-up table salt which helped tremendously last summer.
I’m so excited I can barely sit still!
We are off to visit the finish line today. Next time I post, I’ll be a Boston Marathoner!
