Marathon Monday

Intended to run 20 miles this morning bright and early so I could come home and watch the Boston Marathon in its entirety, but you know how it goes.  I wasn't able to get myself out the door until 10:30.  I woke up later than I wanted and was watching coverage of the race online and was finding it hard to tear myself away.

I ran my 20 miles, and struggled in the final miles due to a bright sun and hottest temps of the year so far, and returned to see that Flanagan had fallen to 7th place overall.

Meanwhile, in the men's race:

It was exciting to see that Meb Keflezighi had finally clinched his dream of winning Boston, and with only 11 seconds to spare, no less.

Overall a beautiful day for a race that seemed to go off without a hitch.  Regarding next year, I'm told that Stevie's family wants to fly up from Florida to spectate.  My dad and stepmother may come up as well.  I can't wait.
