Great pictures Shaw! I have a niece living with her friends in Boston. They LOVE it there even though it's so expensive! Good luck to your Katie!

Oh, but Sue. The Food - to die for.

I hope the rider didn't push that poor horse too far on that asphalt.

And last, but certainly not least, I hope Katie finished. I can't imagine even placing in that thing - just a slow crawl across the finish line is most admirable.

Fond memories of my two days in Boston come back.

Kate finished! She's been training for less than a year! Her first marathon and she finished it in 4 1/2 hours!

She did it to raise funds for Dana Farber Cancer research after a beloved aunt died last year.

Kate is a special person!

We're all so proud of her.

I was a runner for many years but never managed to do more than a half marathon. The kness couldn't take the punishment.

I stayed with running 10Ks around Boston and vicinity and loved it.

I know what it was like to do a 1/2 marathon. I can't imagine doing a whole one.
