Boston's Run To Remember

Boston's "Run To Remember" is a half marathon race through downtown Boston in honor of those in the Armed Forces, and Police Officers killed in the line of duty.

We had originally signed up for the Half Marathon portion of the race, but after two weeks of moving and being sick for another two weeks, we were just not feeling ready to run 13.1 miles. We decided to step down to the 5 Miler option of the race instead.

It was a beautiful day for a quick race, and running through downtown Boston was so amazing. We ran through Fanueil Hall, the Theatre District, Downtown Crossing, and the start and finish was at the World Trade Center in the Seaport area. The race had over 9,000 people running and crowds lined most of the race route!

The five miles was easy, breezy, beautiful because we had gotten up to 8 miles in our training for the Half Marathon part we had intended to run.

Next up, the Providence Rock N Roll Half Marathon in August, and training is officially in full swing!
