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.
