|This was also my parents 43rd anniversary weekend! Aren't they just adorable? :)|
|The place was kind of a "chipotle" style, but with mediterranean flavors. Delicious!|
|Mom made me a sign for race day:)|
|I met Deena Kastor and Ryan Hall (I met Ryan once before in 2011). The first time I went through to get a photo|
all the photos taken were blurry, so I double downed and went through the line again.:)
|My new Boston Jacket! The Boston Marathon decided this year that they would be retiring the number #261 in honor|
of the 50th anniversary of Kathy Switzer being the first official woman runner in the Boston Marathon.
Yes, I know you're not "supposed" to eat new things right before a race, but Dad and I hit EVERY sample station...some of them multiple times. I love samples, and I clearly I get that from my dad. :)
Then we were able to listen to the last half of a beautiful vocal performance at the Trinity Church where we also attended Easter Mass and a Blessing of the Runners (my first!).
