I love marathon weekend in Boston!
The energy and excitement is pulsing through the city.
This year, I staffed the Runner’s World booth at the Boston Marathon Expo on Friday & Saturday before the marathon.

Books for sale – including November Project the book!
I had a great time staffing the booth – selling books, meeting authors, chatting with marathon runners & their families.
On Saturday night, I attended the book launch party for November Project and got the 3 authors to sign the book.
Sunday, I went to a Red Sox game with my Dad. (I bought him tickets for a Christmas present.) The people honored throughout the game were marathon runners and survivors of the 2013 bombing. The pre-game ceremonies had me crying.

Monday, my husband & I cheered just before mile 25 of the marathon. The cheering crowd is a huge part of what makes marathon running in Boston so epic. If a runner has their name written on them on race day, the crowd will cheer their name. This also works with the name of the charity team their running for, or in my case, losing your mind for any runners with November Project gear.
I think my best photo from the day though was when a guy running the marathon stopped to kiss his wife in the crowd before running on.
Congrats to all the runners out on the course on Monday. You are all amazing!
