I had the wonderful pleasure of having a visit from my Best friend in the world. We've been buddies since 6th grade .... and trust me, that's a LOT of years ago. I hadn't seen her for over 10 years so it was a huge treat to have her stay with me. One of the reasons for her visit (as if my fabulous company wasn't enough) was to come to the Boston Marathon. A good friend of hers was running in the race, and she wanted to be there to support her.
Now my friend Lori runs marathons herself......it still freaks me out to say that...but she does. The very thought of running over 26 miles, on purpose, just boggles my mind. Unless someone is in front of my carrying a large crate of chocolate...and someone else is chasing me with a bloody knife....then I'm NOT running anywhere! But for some sick reason Lori thinks it's FUN (go figure...and she's an incredibly intelligent person too so it makes no sense). She wasn't running in this marathon , but she did want to run the 5K on Sunday. So off we went to Boston so she could streak throught the city streets.
In the crowd.....hands in the air....making sure I was paying attention.
Waving goodbye as she heads to the finish line.
And looking fresh and ready for anything after the race! I'd need a massage and a week off! But she was ready to stroll the streets of Boston. I was so proud of her....to me it's amazing that at ALMOST 50 she is still a super hero! YOU ROCK MY FRIEND!!!
The next day was the big race. So we went back to Boston to meet up with her friends for the main event. Since Lori is one of the coolest people on the planet, I wasn't the least bit surprised to find out her friends were sweet, fun, and fabulous too!
But as you can tell by these pictures....Vero made it look easy!
