Today I am a Boston marathoner.

Not just a marathoner.
Not just a Bostonian.
But a Bostonian who ran her first Boston marathon.

And it was awesome.
Just imagine being a rock star for five hours with literally thousands of people cheering your name.

Hurts so good is an appropriate phrase right now.

A better recap will come tomorrow but overall I felt good. Sore at the end but you can never underestimate the value of walking down stairs backward.

Also passed and beat Teddy Bruschi by like 30 minutes. That guy is one of my favorite patriots and I love him to pieces (he came back to football after suffering a stroke but passing him did feel oh so good. Don't worry I got pictures. Plenty of pictures to share tomorrow.

For now... Ice bath. 25 minutes. All in!
