first time in boston. loved it. it was a super stressful trip though. i was in boston for less than 48 hours, i hopped in a taxi at the finish line to go straight to the airport to catch my flight, i flew home in my race clothes with salt crust on my face, and i got up at 4am the next morning to drive from highland to logan to take my finals.
also, my family came with me, and they are stressful travelers. there was one point where we were wheeling a bunch of rolly suitcases down the streets of boston trying to figure out how to use public transit and everyone was bickering and rolling around.
ALSO, it was the 2008 women's marathon olympic trials that year. deena kastor!
