Honestly, one of my goals in life is to qualify to run it. For my age group, I'd have to run a 3:35 to secure a spot. Obviously that's not happening anytime soon, but hopefully...maybe...down the road, it will happen. And until then, I'll watch on TV.
This year, I rallied a few runner girlfriends together and had a watch party. We watched the elite women run 4:30 minute/miles like it was a walk in the park. Saw Jeptoo run a course record. And then watched Meb take home the win for the Americans. It was an awesome morning.
PS another reason I love having Chromecast? Pulled up the live stream on the laptop and cast it to the TV. Worked like a charm.
Oh, and we had food and mimosas, too.
Krusteaz Cinnamon Crumb Cake. If you can't bake (like me) this is an awesome little secret. Totally from a box, but doesn't taste like it.
What beats girlfriends, mimosa, the Boston Marathon and a yummy breakfast? Not much. And I even got to love on sweet baby Claire :). Bliss.
