|The Newton Fire Station....at the bottom of the series of Newton Hills.|
I'm attempting to post this from my phone...
Yesterday we headed down to Boston Common for the BAA 5k. Wow! It was such an amazing sight. The runners, the spectators, volunteers and glorious weather just made for an awesome experience! The noise of everyone was hushed when the national anthem played. It was incredible and very emotional. When the mayor said "it's time we take back Boylston!" I thought the crowd would erupt.
Matt ran a stellar 5k! So we celebrated by shopping at the convention. ;) this is where I may have spent my entire life savings, lol. JK
|I think I have a problem :S|
How is it already Marathon Eve!?!?!? :O
I started the day out with my last training run, which was actually a 2 mile shake out run. Canadians, I hate to say this, but the trees are blooming here in a Newton, MA!
The rest of today will be spent resting, hydrating and eating. Sounds pretty good to me! ;) I will also have to change my mind another 76 times on my outfit choice. Race day will be 64 degrees Fahrenheit ... A far cry from the Nova Scotia temperatures I've been running in! I'm not expecting a PR tomorow. But if the running gods are in a good mood, I'll certainly take one. ;)
I expect an emotional run tomorrow with tremendous support along the course. The entire city is super engaged and supportive to the runners! They are expecting a million spectators tomorrow!!!!! :O how crazy!!!
Thanks for stopping by GGR today!
Happy Easter & Happy Running!
Boston is tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!
