Boston M Day-1…
Cold night in a dorm room with 4 other girls. Ventilation turned all night long blowing what I would call cold air… Got an extra top, bonnet and scarf for sleeping! Welcome to Boston!!!
Up a few times during the night due to the noise in the street. Not to fun! Then 6:45am, got ready for morning run and check with S. Aimed for Charles river. Nice place to run and nice weather too. Lots of runners running there.
Back to the hotel, took some times to get a restroom available for showing. It will be interesting tomorrow to see when all runners wish to shower at once! Breakfast in the common room: oat porridge, gojji berries and cranberries, banana and oat milk. 3 small wakes with syrup and honey and a tea. A bit more than regular breakfast (!), but a marathon is to be run tomorrow!
Chat with my roommates, coming from Wisconsin. Andrea is running and qualified at an Halloween marathon 🙂 She is in Wave 2, corral 2. A fast gal too! Diana her sister will be cheering around Heartbreak Hill, so I took the opportunity to ask her to cheer for me as well!
Aiming to City Support, got a short shorts from Adidas, Boston marathon branded as well as a jacket from the marathon. Tram to Boston college to check out the famous Heartbreak hill.
Enough of walking. Back to downtown for late lunch at Indian restaurant.
Last minute shopping of fruits and juice. Now finishing preparation of clothes for tomorrow.
Time to switch off the connection to the outside world. Hopefully more info later on tomorrow…
Boston, less than 16 hours from the start…
