Marathon Monday

On Monday we drove to Ellie's house to watch the Boston Marathon. Me, Emmy and Ellie walked over to Coolidge Corner with our folks and waited forever for the runners to come by.

Where are all the runners?

Finally some wheelchairs started whizzing by. Uncle Henry went and got us a croissant while we waited.

And then we waited some more.

Finally these two ladies sprinted by.

It's so exciting!

Alevtina Biktimirva and Dire Tune
Turned out that they were almost this close at the finish line too!

Robert K Cheruiyot
This was the first guy and it wasn't even close. Those women had him beat by a long ways!

It was a lot of fun to see the marathon. Maybe next year I can run it!
