Booking Boston!

I finally put a countdown on my phone to the Boston Marathon to keep myself on track and it’s only 150 days away from today! Once I received the information that I was officially in for Boston 2015, I immediately started talking to B about our trip there. I know that a lot of my upcoming posts will be about our trip there and training for the marathon as I’m pretty sure this is a ‘one-time-thing’, I do want to remember all the details. There were two things I really wanted to do while we are there. Eat Boston Creme Pie and go to a Red Sox Game. The other important thing is also running the marathon! While we were planning out our trip, I had to keep reminding myself that the race is on Monday, not Sunday. I know that on Sunday I want to keep it pretty low-key and make sure to go to bed early. When we were choosing our flights, we looked up the Red Sox schedule and decided to head to a game on the Friday when we are in town. We were planning on flying out on Friday and staying longer into the following week after the marathon, but it seemed that it wasn’t working out that way so we are going for a few days before the marathon and leaving the day after.

We looked at a few different hotels and found the best deal on Expedia and I’m excited to say that our trip is officially booked! We are staying at the Omni Parker House Hotel which is right by the Expo and finish line and I later found out they are KNOWN for their Boston Creme Pie. I’m so excited to try it! I had to think about B and what he will be doing while I’m out running the race as well. I know he will be able to snag a good spot by the finish line because our hotel is so close which will be great! We can also walk to the Expo.

It’s hard to figure out what else we want to do when we are there since I know I don’t want to be walking all over town when I have to run a marathon, but I still want to have fun and see things that we normally don’t get the chance too. Our activities are also very dependent on what the weather will be like while we are there as well. I’m already hoping it will be warm!

As for now through December, I’m planning on running 3-4 miles, M-W-F, and running 5-8 miles, depending how I feel on the weekend. I’m still wearing my boot nightly and icing and taping my foot daily.

150 days and counting!

    I have been following your blog for a while and when you qualified for Boston, I was like, “She runs at nearly my pace for all her training runs, maybe I can actually do this!”…and I did! I am excited to see your future Boston posts. My boyfriend and I are going and we cannot wait.

    I’m a Massachusetts gal (used to live in Boston, now live on Cape Cod) so I am so excited to follow you on your journey to Boston!! Two things you should really try to do during your weekend here: a Duckboat Tour!! It’s a great way to see the city (SO much history) and you don’t have to do much, if any, walking! And second, the North End is famous for Italian food. Seriously so so good. And if you go before the race it counts as carb-loading, right? ;)

    SO EXCITED FOR YOU! While Weez and I excitedly decided to save our vacay days and savings for another trip in 2015, that’s not to say I’m not totally jealous/jazzed/excited that Boston gets to see YOU next spring. I can’t wait to watch your training unfold and hear about your Boston memories. They’re gonna be rad!
