it's been a very busy two weeks with a good bit of traveling up and down the east coast. i logged a whopping 10.6 miles one week and 22.75 the next. superb way to prep for a marathon (in less than one month, ugh i am so disgusted with myself).
i went to a friend's wedding in a (very) small town near augusta, ga.

i went to boston to see friends and spectate the marathon
i realized i was pretty nerdy for flying up to watch a marathon. these things are expensive enough to run, and now i'm traveling just to spectate?
no offense if your name was not on the sign, i was having
trouble remembering all you amazing runners!
(and didn't write small enough)
it was a busy day of spectating around mile 22-23 and the finish. i bumped in to karyn post-race and got to chat with her a little as we wandered to find a t stop.
eventually we made it back to terri's apartment and there were still runners on the course (5:30pm and later)! i can't imagine being out there and watching the water stations being dismantled as you are trying to finish your race. there was one volunteer still cheering them on, serious dedication there. i'll admit, i was too tired and selfish to continue cheering.
flying home tuesday afternoon, i ran into meg at the airport! always good to see her - just reading her blog brightens my day. (btw meg, jill and i discussed things and decided we are going to come visit and hang out with you ok?) :)
i was off work friday so i played housekeeping ninja and went to my newlywed friend's house to tidy up a little before they returned from their honeymoon. it wasn't super messy, just needed general tidying after the pre-wedding rush, but i did find 3.5-month-old grapes in the fridge.
saturday we went to the steeplechase and out on the lake, and now i look like rudolph.
so that's what i've been up to with a little running mixed in.
