Boston Marathon by the Numbers

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...


You will get a full re-cap soon! I am too tired to do it now. We left Boston at 5:00 pm on Monday and didn't get home to Pennsylvania until 1:15 am.

I have to be at work at 7:55 am this morning. And I have piano lessons after school. So you get the short version today!


Trips to the port 'o john before the race: Only 3. I am dissapointed in myself.

Times I stopped for a pictures along the course: Too many to count!

# of times Paul clapped: 203,000 times

Celebrity/Elite athlete sightings: Zero!

# of blogger friends I met: 1 (Girl Goes Running!)

$$ spent on gear at the Expo: $110.00 (Jacket).

# of pictures with Big Bird: 1


I haven't been able to catch up on anything in the blog world these past few days. Tell me something I missed!

  1. I am SO glad you bought the jacket! I am also glad they had some left in your size. I heard they sold out of smalls! I can't wait to hear all about your race! Glad you got to meet Heather!
