Reese, the beagle, knows exactly how I feel after today’s marathon excitement: exhausted and ready to snooze on the couch! But, first, I want to share some photos from the big race, so here’s a bunch from the day. 

Downtown Boston, near Mass Ave, was packed with spectators! 

As soon as the first runners came through, the crowds erupted into non-stop cheering! 

We saw the women’s elite runners around mile 25. I was routing so hard for Kara Goucher (in the pink top). I wish she had won! 

The men’s winner, Ethiopia’s Deriba Merga, followed behind the women just a few minutes later. He was hauling ass up that hill! 

The pack of runners followed a little while later. 

Runners turning onto Boylston Street… almost done! 

The finish line is right around the corner! 


Tonight’s dinner was a quickie recipe from Real Simple. I swear you can’t go wrong with a fast and easy recipe from Real Simple, especially when you’re not at all in the mood to cook! For dinner, I had Garlicky Pinto Beans with a big salad packed full of veggies. 

I’m feeling lazy tonight, so I didn’t snap a picture of my dinner– instead I borrowed one from the Real Simple website. 😳

I’m off to get organized for the work week– at least it’s only 4 days! G’night, guys!
