My family is at the Boston Marathon & I am super jealous

Yesterday several family members & friends ran the BAA 5K yesterday
I am jealous.
They even got to try the Sam Adams 26.2 brew that came out for the Marathon.
 Super jealous.
Today, my parents went to watch the Marathon.
They stood in Kenmore Square
 At the one mile to go marker
And they even saw one of the elite runners collapse right in front of them.
I am not sure who it was... he was face down and I couldn't read the number on his back.
My mom sent me a picture, but I didn't think it would be appropriate on my blog, poor guy.
He was taken away on an "ambulance" (they had makeshift golf carts for easier manuevering around the crowds), he wasn't moving and rapidly breathing.
Like I said, poor guy.
I hope everyone was safe out there today.
I loathe running in the hot, sunny weather down here. 
 My cousin and I were tweeting earlier
 Congrats to the 2012 Boston Finishers!


  1. I love that last photo! That's cool that your family was there. My boyfriend lives near Boston and he said he loves going up there to watch all the action!

  2. I'd love to see Boston in real life! The elite runners are just so dang talented!
