boston or bust
Regardless of the weather, the atmosphere in Boston on marathon weekend is pretty awesome. Last time I remember feeling a buzz and an excitement in the air that I'd never really experienced before. From the expo, to getting to do my long run on part of the marathon course, to watching the runners from my spot on Boylston Street, it was a fun time to be there. Plus it was kind of fun to play "count the celebration jackets" when wandering around the day after the race. Since this year's jackets aren't nearly as ugly as 2010's, maybe we'll see even more.
Good luck to all of you internet peeps out there who are running on Monday! (are you dying of excitement yet Marlene?) May the wind and the weather be with you - and may the odds be ever in your favour? (is that right? I just saw the movie, I haven't read the books) Most of all though - good luck Jordan!
And if it is extra hot - be smart as hard as it is to slow down, there's always another race.
