Despite coming down with my annual pre-Blue Nose post-Boston cold just 24 hours before we headed off to Fredericton, I'd say the trip was a complete success!
Minus the cold meds of course.
I was feeling pretty much like Lola looks in the below picture...lol.
When Matt handed me the 5:30 a.m. coffee on Sunday morning, I gladly accepted. Plus I love these cups!
Matt and Luke before the marathon. :)
Lola and I tried hard to be the best cheerleaders and photographers. If you 'like' the Girl Goes Running Facebook page you've probably already seen the race photos, but here's one or two to keep you up to date. :) Spectating was super fun and I truly hope the readers who yelled out to me along the route had awesome runs! I'd love to hear how you did and thanks for the shout out!!! :)
This year I got to see the marathoners and half marathoners at around the 5k point before they hit the trail.

|Lola and I snapped over 100 photos and then it started to rain so we hit up the car to fuel up with a sesame seed bagel and cheer from the window since we parked along the route. :)|
Panicked because of the clock time, I started yelling like a nut "Hurry up! GO GO GO!" I'm sure I got "The most supportive wife award" that day according to the ladies next to me who gave me super serious stares, lol. They would have understood had they known about the BQ. ;)
|3:04:27! Way to go Matt!!!|
|We're going to swap the word "injured" for "Sick," and this is totally me!|
On Wednesday I decided to try out my lulu capris that have the mesh panels. I'd only worn them at the gym until now and they were super cool to run in!
On Thursday I decided on an easy trail run and about 1/2 a mile in I saw Sam. We ran together to the waterfall and then took these crazy pics, lol:
Then we tried a normal one too. :)
Last easy run before the Blue Nose 1/2!
You know that moment of joy when a coworker requests as many shoe boxes as you have for a class project and you'd been longing to get rid of a ton of them? Well tonight I said "Good riddens" to 12 of them! LOL. Running couples certainly have a stash of shoes!
Lola wanted to say "hi" before we hit the sack.
Are you taking part in any of the Blue Nose events???
Were you at the Fredericton marathon?
Please tell me you have a ton of shoeboxes as well!
