I'm Shipping Up to Boston!

This is my cousin Amanda

She’s running the Boston Marathon on Monday

as part of the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge team

and has raised over $7,700 for cancer research – awesome!

There are several members of my family meeting up in Boston for the 
weekend to cheer her on.  We are having a fun dinner in the 
North End Saturday night with lots of this

before 7 of us run the B.A.A. 5k on Sunday morning.

Along the Marathon course on Monday we will have this most awesome sign

 *Note:  This is my friend Derek.  I had the sign shipped to his place in Boston so I wouldn't have to take it on the plane - thanks Romanos!  However, he thinks that by appearing on my blog his photo will go viral and he will become the most popular guy on the web.  I've known this kid since I was 14, he is not kidding...
and of course, no cheer section would be complete without

After Mandy’s 26.2 mile adventure from Hopkinton to Boylston Street 
we will all meet up on Newbury to toast her journey with these…

GOOD LUCK to all you Boston Marathoners out there!  We'll be cheering for you!!
