Boston Baby!

In 4 days I will be lining up to race the greatest marathon (at least that is what they tell me...I will let you know on Tuesday) in the world! I will be amongst some of the fastest runners in the world (well, they will mostly be ahead of me). People from every state and from all over the world have qualified to participate in this, the 2nd biggest sporting event (behind the Superbowl)! For more fun facts click here.
I am so excited that Garth will be coming to cheer me on as we make our first trip to Boston together! Thank you to Grandma and Grandpa Gair and April for helping us out with the kids!


It has been a thrilling marathon journey, with many miles on the road (over 3500 miles over the past 3 years), early mornings, late evenings, extreme cold (frozen fingers, water, Gatorade...remember that Angie?), hot weather, nagging injuries and a very loving husband who let me do this!

Thank you friends and family for all of your support (especially those that listened to me talk non-stop about running), I couldn't have done it without you!
