I flew into Boston late last night and basically went to the hotel and to bed. I’ve heard that the night before the night before is the most important when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep, and I totally nailed it last night. 10 hours total.
I don’t even remember the last time I slept that long, but I’ll take it!
I grabbed a bacon and egg sandwich from Starbucks and then headed over to the expo.
It was still packed even though it was Sunday… but I wasn’t too late because I was able to grab one of the famed posters (I’m waiting to unroll when I get home) that has every registrant of the race printed into a cool design. So excited to see what it looks like this year.
Anyways, since I was late to the expo (third day), a lot of things were already sold out and there wasn’t much in my size. I did manage to get some sweet sweats (these) which I’m breaking in as I write this (so comfy), and since they didn’t have any hoodies left (my usual splurge), I opted to grab THIS.
And of course… a trip to the finish line!
I would say that I’m a little superstitious so of course I didn’t cross the finish line, can’t do that until tomorrow! Speaking of tomorrow… the weather is still heating up (boo) — but at least it wasn’t like today, where I think it topped out at 89*. But also, there’s going to be a pretty solid tailwind from what I’ve heard so I’ll definitely take that!
Even with the weather, my race strategy stays the same… I am gunning for that PR! This will be the last post on the blog until probably Tuesday, so if you want to track me tomorrow, my bib is 16864… or check me out on Snapchat (@loramarie03) or Instagram.
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE RUNNING!!! And see ya on the other side!
