Boston Marathon photos

Since we arrived home last night, exhaustion has totally set in.  Neither Tom or I slept much Saturday night due to the unexpected emergency room visit.  And unfortunately Sunday night I fell asleep quickly after a tough day recovering from food poisoning only to wake up several hours later.  Of course I started thinking about the race and how would I manage with so little fueling ahead of time.  Carb loading?  That did not happen this time.  I digress.  Back to the topic of the post, here are some photos from the start of our weekend that we wanted to share!








Loved seeing the finish line as they were finishing up with the race day preparations on Thursday afternoon.  I would cross this line both during the 5k and the marathon!


A beautiful tribute to the four who died because of the 2013 bombings.

Old South Church



I so badly wanted to attend one of these services, but due to my ER room visit on late Saturday night until Sunday at 2:30am, it was impossible. 




Attended the premiere of Run Free, more on this in another post when my brain is not mush!


And I finally met the speedy Kass from Lone Runner!  Plenty of recaps of our time in Boston will be coming soon.  Many thanks for all your support on social media throughout a very challenging race weekend.

  1. I want to say at least I'm not the only nutty one out there. Right before my first marathon at WDW this year, I got food poising Friday, in the hospital on Saturday, and ran the marathon on Sunday. People couldn't believe I would want to start the race let alone finish (including the doctors at the hospital - who all said I wouldn't be able to). Just too much was put into it not to. Congrats on pushing through!!

  19. I love how Boston is filled with blue and yellow leading up to, during and after the marathon. Yarn work is fun to find - I've never seen ones with flowers before. Sorry to hear about your ER visit, so glad you were able to run the next day.
