Right after I crossed the finish line, I met up with my friend Amy! She used to live in LA and moved back to Boston. She was volunteering at the Finish Line! Thank you Amy! She helped me get all my food and my medal at the end!
Then I headed back to the Copley Marriott to meet up with my friends and family! Dana-Farber had massages ready for us. It was divine. I think I almost fell asleep. It was the first time I had sat down in over 7 hours!
Then I found everyone waiting for me!
Peter finished too! Congrats, Peter!
I have some dedicated fans. haha
Thanks Chely for coming all the way out from LA to see us!
The medal was totally worth it!
Billy came out to see me too!!! Hi Billy!
I was starving by this point, and everyone else was too! They had been cheering for hours and hours! We jumped on the T and headed to dinner!
I had the best burger of my life for diner. 🙂 A sweet reward.
I didn’t want to take my medal off all night!
Thanks for skipping school to come to my race, Laurie!
Gizmo wasn’t impressed though.
Then I left on Tuesday. 😦 It was a short trip, but an exciting one for sure!
And one more of gizzy. 🙂
At the airport, we met up with our friend, Tyler! He finished in under 3 hours. Pretty amazing!~
Tyler, Chely, Irving and I were all on the same flight back to LA! On Virgin, you can “chat” with other passengers! Comedy ensued:
I showered, don’t worry. lol
But did you see that? The flight time was 5:57! Same as my marathon time! Pretty cool huh? HAHA
I made sure to bring back treats from Boston for my co-workers! YUM!
The next day, I forced myself to take an “ice bath”.
I took all the ice I had from my freezer…
And poured it into my tub with cold water…
Yep. It was as cold as it looks. lol
But it did the trick. I totally feel good as new now!!
