The first three miles of the race went through downtown Boston by the State House, Government Center, and Faneuil Hall. Around mile 4, we approached Memorial Drive where the course was open to the sun, heat, and humidity of the morning.
My favorite part of the race is running along Memorial Drive. Even though it was hot, I was feeling amazing an miles were just flying by, isn’t that the best feeling ever?! It was on the way back towards Boston that I heard Fabiana, Laura, Allison yelling my name! An officer that was running by me was really surprised by all the people that was cheering on me that commented :”Wow you are famous” Ha ha
Heading toward Boston Common, the Public Garden, and the Old State House, the heat started to get to me and lost some speed at mile 10 but picked it again at mile 11.
I knew if I kept it up I was gonna PR, so there I was pushing to reach my goal and finish strong.
When I was approaching the finish line, I saw my honey, Amy, Rick and Matt cheering on me, I sprinted to the finish line and crossed it at 1:32:59…so close to 1:30!
