The race day weather was a bummer. It rained the whole time and I was soaked before I even crossed the start line. My shoes felt like they weighed 20 pounds but I couldn't complain. There were 30,000 other people just as crazy as I am doing the same thing. But honestly I was most impressed by the people who decided to come out in the pouring rain and cheer for strangers. The spectators this year were absolutely amazing! I would like to thank everyone that came out to watch. I would also like to thank all of the police officers who stood out there getting soaked in order to keep us safe. I know security was a big concern after the tragic events of Boston, but I felt safe and the whole environment was very positive.
Steve was so amazing. He got up with me at 5:30am and took me down to the start line. Then he waited in the rain to cheer me on at mile 8 and then he showed up at the finish. He was trying so hard to take pictures, but I think the rain and the crowds had other ideas. He even pulled the number one best boyfriend move ever: got me a massage after the race. That might be the most considerate present ever. I spent the rest of the weekend recovering and even got a pedicure courtesy of my awesome & supportive parents on Sunday. And somehow I also made time to go see the Protomen's 10th anniversary concert on Saturday night with Steve.
This is the outfit I wore on our trip to Cheekwood Botanical Garden last weekend. It's a remix of the jumper from this shoot last year. If I look a little chubby up top, its because of all the ruffles underneath my sweater. Ruffles sure do add volume! I'm still totally in love with this jumper from Lalamagic and I keep trying to mix it up so it doesn't look 100% the same. I figured this white sweater was a good addition. (I think I've had this sweater since high school.)
