My flight to Boston leaves in less than 7 hours. I’m running around the house like a mad woman making sure I’ve packed everything for Baby C and I. I still can not believe that I will be running the BOSTON MARATHON 5 months after giving birth. I am so grateful and thankful for all my body has given me. When I cross that finish line on Monday you can be darn sure that I will be crying.

    oh I so want to be there. I worked my can off last year and five weeks before my marathon to qualify I rolled my ankle. My running buddy qualified but not me. Well good luck to you and here's hoping I qualify sometime this year.
