What a day yesterday! With records broken and a memorable finish in both the mens' and womens' races, it was a truly exciting day at the Boston Marathon. I was glued to my computer and not getting very much work done as I followed along all morning and into the afternoon.
More than anything, though, I was interested in tracking all of my friends who were out there having the time of their lives and showing us what it's all about.
And from the Newmarket Running Room Marathon Team, some of my peeps:
John, Lynn, Elaine, Micki, Jayne, Paul, Steve and Jodi!
It was truly inspiring to follow along and absorb just a fraction of the experience. I
want to need to will get there one day to have this experience for myself, but for now it is just a thrill to live vicariously through all of the awesome runners named above (and others); I can't wait to continue reading everyone's updates and reports (guess I won't be getting much work done today either).
Of one thing I am certain: I will fight for this. Because someone assures me that it's worth it:
"all i can say is that it's worth the fight to get here...totally. worth. it!"
