Last weekend had to rank as one of the greatest experiences of my life.  I had the opportunity to spend a few days in Boston with my daughter Sarah and son Andrew.  We watched the Jays beat the Red Sox at Fenway Park on Sunday and then I ran the Boston Marathon on Monday. Thirty thousand of us from all over the world wound our way along the 42.2 km route from Hopkinton to Boston.  I had read ahead of time that it's a good idea to have your name on your shirt so people can cheer for you by name.  Am I ever glad I did.  It was energizing having people say "Way to go Mark!" and "You've got this Mark" along the whole route.  I finished with a time of 3 hours 39 minutes and 42 seconds which I'm happy with considering the day was on the warm side and there was a strong head wind at times.  I finished in the top third of men in my age category which I'm quite happy about considering I only qualified by a margin of 18 seconds.  When the marathon was over, I was so exhausted I looked and walked like a zombie.  The funny thing is that by the next day I was researching other marathons.

Thanks to everyone who cheered me on and especially to Sarah and Andrew who made the trip with me.  It made all those early morning training runs through the middle of the winter worth it!
