Matt and I are once again staying just a couple of miles from the infamous series of Newton Hills along the Boston Marathon Course as well as THE Heartbreak Hill. I finally feel like these hills are easy peesy now, well, that is because I'm usually in the car when I go up them, LOL. (sorry for the dry joke, but my race nerves are REALLY affecting me today, lol).
We've been busy exploring since we arrived so let's take a look:
I took crappy phone pics of every sign that said "Boston" on it until we got there, lol.
Literally after we checked in we drove by the Newton fire station and had a photo shoot.
Then we hit up Heartbreak Hill Running Company and I bought "The Jacket" and then had my personal photographer take more photos. :D
I don't know about you but I'm in LOVE with this year's jacket!
Saturday morning I did my very last run and I RAN IN SHORTS! I'm so sorry to all Bostonians who I may have blinded with my Nova Scotian pale legs.
|I stopped at this very spot last year and snapped a photo of this very same Magnolia tree. It's in bloom and it's so pretty!|
|The famous Citgo sign indicating you're a mile away. The trick is to not look up at it until you're REALLY close since you can see it a few miles away!|
Feelin' pretty giddy at the expo.
You know what else is cool besides attending the best Marathon expo in the world, meeting up with IG friends who you feel like you know already! Rhea is going to have a speedy run tomorrow just so you know. ;)
I also headed over to the Adidas Boston Marathon Runbase and saw some pretty cool things!
This isn't me, but here's where the pic was!!!
THEN I SAW THE HUNGRY RUNNER GIRL ON THE SIDEWALK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HRG is incredibly nice and I am pretty confident that her friends thought I was a nut, lol. She even got a pic with me...I just hope she couldn't feel me shaking...lol.
Post expo I totally chillaxed in my new tee!!!
See you tomorrow Boylston!!!
