I’m Shipping Up To Boston!

Apparently writing is therapeutic. I’ve had the best week. I’m still fighting a cough and the weather isn’t looking great for Monday, but I am PUMPED and feeling good. Last week was just a funk. We all go through them. This weekend is a celebration of a goal that has already been accomplished. I’m excited to go hang out with a bunch of nerdie runners in Boston! This is the most calm I’ve been the weekend before 26.2. Hoping it stays that way.

Obligatory motivational photo. In the fall of 2012 I made the decision to train for Boston. It’s been quite a ride.


Rain? Wind? Meh. It’s Boston.

Here we are at the airport taking advantage of “free” goodies in the Admiral’s Lounge.


Brent and I on the plane. Yup, Gisele and I are those dorks rockin’ the marathon jackets.

This week has been great for a number of reasons…

I’ve been showered with love.

Alaina gifted me with this AWESOME shirt on the way to the airport this morning. Charm photo coming soon!IMG_0066

I sat on tennis balls and baseballs at work all week. Maria, one of my co-workers called them my booty balls.


Cecilia and I went on a cite visit for the new Equitas #2 building on 8th and Hoover, where we’ll co-locate for a year. We also hired an incredible Kindergarten teacher who fell in love with Equitas during her interview day and accepted same day.



Alaina, Ashley, Julie and I had happy hour at Father’s Office. Oh how I love those fries.


Not such a great week for this girl. Did you guys see this? Click on the photo for the article. I don’t want to be mean, but look at that guilty face.

Screen Shot 2015-04-18 at 8.37.02 AMI’ll end with 3 ways you know you’re on a flight to Boston on Patriot’s Day weekend.

  1. People request an entire bottle of water.
  2. There’s a guy stretching in the aisle.
  3. The bathroom line is longer than usual, and is mostly runners sporting their Boston jackets.

Alright, time to work on my play list. Any suggestions? This one just made this list.


Next update will be in Boston!
