We squeezed in a last minute trip to Boston before my new position starts (training begins tomorrow at 7:00 am) and we really had a wonderful time.
- We stayed at the historic Parker House hotel, where JFK proposed to Jackie and the great literati toasted.
|Small rooms but great location.|
- We walked the Freedom trail, reveling in our history and quaint old churches and graves.
- We discovered that if it was metal and it was made before 1820, Paul Revere made it (seriously, this man had a monopoly going on).
- We visited Salem, Havard, MIT, Lexington, and Concorde - mostly thanks to our friends with a car!
|It was a gray day in Salem. Perfect for drowning witches.|
- We threw snowballs - for the first time ever (I mean, at each other. I've thrown them at other people of course).
- We stood on the Old North Bridge.
|I fired the snowball shot heard 'round the world a few minutes after this picture was taken.|
- We ate our weight in Canolis and fresh breads and cheeses from the North End.
- We ran across the Charles River and around the Boston Commons.
|We certainly had a range of weather, didn't we?|
- We decided to come back next year so I can run this little marathon because I was getting serious running envy seeing all the preparations and excitement.
Are you running Boston? Tomorrow I will post my Boston favorites for you!
