Marathon Monday 2015

Wishing everyone a happy Marathon Monday! I'm cheering for all my friends running the Boston Marathon and definitely will be watching the results live via my computer at work today. 

Why isn't Marathon Monday a national holiday? 

 Besides cheering for Shalane and Meb, I know friends and other bloggers running so it's really fun to virtually follow everyone. 

I think the Boston Marathon is the most inspiring sports event!

One day soon it'll hopefully be my turn to run such a special race. I'm feeling really inspired and think this year might be there I get my time with only a minute (plus a little extra) to shave off!

Last year getting to be there in Boston to watch the race and cheer on a friend was an amazing experience! Boston Strong!

Are you following the Boston Marathon today? Do you have friends running the race?

  2. It was so amazing to watch. I had goosebumps the entire time.

    I don't think I'll ever be fast enough, but perhaps a charity option would work out. You never know :)

  3. I had several friends running. Boston is my home town, so the marathon holds a special place in my heart. I've got a ways to go to qualify, but enter the 40 age group in a year, so hopefully the extra 5 minutes will help :)
