5 Weeks Til Boston!

5 weeks from today, we'll all be wearing our finisher medals, drinking some good beer somewhere! This past week we did 18 miles on the Boston course (at Ryan's marathon-goal pace), and it felt GREAT, despite the rainy and windy conditions.

This coming week we both will be running the New Bedford Half Marathon. Miss Bethany has her sites set on a nice PR, while Ryan's just focusing on running a strong race, finishing with negative splits, and staying strong and healthy for upcoming Boston.

How's everyone else's training for Boston going? Anyone racing this weekend as well? Good luck if you are!

As promised, here are some more Boston 2009 pics to get you all excited for what's to come in 2010! (Here are our last pictures as boyfriend & girlfriend.)

Next Boston Countdown post will feature the engagement location, and we'll be just 4 weeks away!!!! Woohoo!!

I can't believe it!! We're in the same corral...right Bethany AND Ryan?? I'm totally excited and I can't believe it. I always feel so lonely in the corral because I don't know anyone and it's so far from home but NOT anymore! Yippee, how fun!
