It is time to get our run on!!! We were on our feet quite a bit yesterday but made it back to the hotel by 5:30 pm and took the rest of the night easy with our feet up.
Just a few things from yesterday:
I bought this sweet Run Happy hat (from Brooks) at the expo to shield the wind and rain from effecting me out on the course. It’s going to be a fabulous day.
Most of the day was spent with Team Stonyfield and we started out with the Boston Girls on the Run group!
Saw the sweetest Michele… I literally could talk to her for hours, she is incredible.
And my favorite Pam!!! We just bumped into each other on the street, it was meant to be.
Lunch at this delicious place with the Stonyfield girls!
My first eggs benedict experience (that I can remember at least).
Pasta dinner with Candice and all of the other runners!
Followed by special Boston cookies from our hotel.
It was an especially good day.
My quote for the day:
“Sometimes in life, we become so focused on the finish line that we fail to find joy in the journey.” -President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
I am going to enjoy every mile of today. I can’t wait.
Jennifer @ JenChoosesJoy
I hope you have an incredible race!! Catching up on blogs is the perfect distraction while I wait for my wave to start! May he winds and rain be less than we expect!!!
