Boston With Love

I have been writing and re-writing posts in my head ever since the awful tragedies on Monday but have been completely struggling with what to say.  Part of me didn’t want to write anything since so much has already been said way better than I could ever say it, but the other part of me […]

One Month Later

I was looking at the calendar today and was shocked to see that today was already the 18th!  Wasn’t it just May 1st, how can it be May 18th already?  The first thing that popped into my head was that it was one month until Chris and my wedding anniversary!  SIX whole years coming up […]

Race Report: 2011 Boston Marathon

I am having a hard time finding the right words to fully express this day, I just want to do it justice!  I really tried to go into this race without a ton of expectations, but with a race like Boston that is pretty much impossible.  It gets so built up from everyone who has […]
