Lately, every time I think about the Boston Marathon, I get really sad. I’m just sad that it’s over. I feel like it went by too fast. I wish I breathed it in more, I wish I looked around more. At night, I replay the day in my head, over and over again. I feel like the details are fading.
(I remember feeling the same way after my wedding. On the plane to Iceland for our honeymoon, I remember closing my eyes, trying to etch each little moment into my memory.)
At times, it really does feel like the Boston Marathon was just a dream. And then I get sad when I realize it DID happen, and I’ll probably never have the chance to run it again. That was my one shot at it. I will never qualify for Boston, and I’m just not sure how feasible it would be to fund-raise again. I shelled out close to $1,000 between the entry fees, donations and flights.
I really want them to 1.) Scrapbook with them! 2.) To remember & celebrate those moments on the race course.
They’re just so expensive! I’m trying to justify the cost…. They don’t have 4×6 sizes, so the cheapest one is a 5×7 and they are $14.95 a piece! They also have a package where you get all images on a CD (so you can print them yourself) for $79.95.
So what do you think? Should I buy one or two for $15 each… or spring for the bigger package and get ALL the images for $80? Is it worth it?
