Happy Marathon Day!

I happened to be driving through Boston this morning during the 121st running of the Boston Marathon. It occurred to me that I had never been this close to the marathon before and probably wouldn't be again anytime soon, so I took a quick detour to watch a few minutes of the race around mile marker 18. It was thrilling to catch a glimpse of the runners and feel the electrifying buzz of the crowds on a gorgeous sunny day. I hope on of these years the kids and I can go back to get the full experience.
