saturday was chilly and rainy, and we had a slow start to the day. i contemplated running in the morning but it was 37* and i just didn't feel like being 'cold'. we hit up the expo to get our packets (josh and terri ran the 5k on sunday) and browsed around a little (impossible with the crowd, yuck) before we went to catch a duck tour. it was cool, other than the lady and her 10 kids who wanted to "drive" the duck.
josh is a yankees fan so i made him take a photo in front of the red sox 'duck'.
after the duck tour we tried going back to the expo so i could browse some more (i actually wanted to buy things for once) but it was still overly crowded and about to close for the day. i wanted to get one of the fun boston-accent shirts ("wicked fast runnah") for my time-guessing winner but obviously i didn't know who would win at the time.
sunday morning i again debated getting in a short, leg-loosening run in the morning but... yeah. i opted for a little extra laziness before heading into town to spectate josh and terri in the 5k (they both pr'd). it was my first time as a spectator and it is not easy! i have a newfound respect for friends/family who voluntarily spend a long morning to watch me run by for 5 seconds. after all that hard work spectating i went to an amazing brunch (sweet potato pancakes - yum) with even more friends (morgan, meg, jill, and marcia).
josh running his first 5k! :)

sunday afternoon i finally went out for a short, shakeout run and just hung out with josh, terri, her husband and ruthie the 75lb lap-dog :) we eventually had a huge, delicious spaghetti dinner. i'm pretty sure i ate more calories than i burned in the race monday.
[for those who asked - click for the definition of "htfu". i had to look it up myself the first time i heard it. i use "harden" and "hurry" interchangeably for the 'h'. there is a clothing line and facebook group for it.]
