Today is finally the day I leave to Boston after anxiously waiting for three months. I woke up bright and early and by 6:00 am I was already in the Miami International Airport.
My partner in crime and number 1 fan came with me...
The airplane ride was quite adventurous. I slept for the first hour and then I woke up with the sight of a woman taking off her bra in the airplane! I cannot make that up!! My neighbor to the left had her shirt lifted as she removed her bra. This isn't a flight to Vegas..Hello!!
After a 3 hour plane ride we safely landed in Boston.
And off we went to the Boston Marathon Expo.
I was excited to see the "Elite Tent." That's the staging area for the elite marathoners like Kara Goucher and Shalane Flanagan. So cool =)
Milo and I on Boylston Street near the Finish Line
Finally at the expo...with my luggage!
My runner passport in one hand and my bib in another.
I promised I wouldn't be star-struck but I totally was. I can't believe I met Desiree Davila. She was very nice and surprisingly short =)
She gave me an autographed picture of herself.
I also got to meet Ryan Hall!
Now time to study the race course and my strategy.
