Today was race day - the 113th annual running of the Boston Marathon. It's a great day in our state. There were over 26k runners this year; simply amazing!
Not only was it race day, it is also a state holiday and the start of school vacation. That means a super speedy commute to work... UNTIL I got to the off ramp. Then I found all the people that were missing from the roads before.
On the plus side - it's great to see all these people going to support the runners and to see the Red Sox game (BTW... a 12 to 1 win over the Baltimore Orioles. GO SOX!!!!). My office is also in a great location to see said marathon.
The down side - that my office is in a prime location meant lots of loiterers, a hard time getting into our parking garage, and too much traffic (both foot and vehicular) to make my daily Starbucks run.
All in all, a great day to be around Boston!
In other news...
- YAY to Ellie!! Her hubby is one of JC's close friends and has made it home for leave from Afghanistan. I adore both of them, and am simply thrilled that he's home (even if I don't get to see him).
- Tonight I'm taking in DWTS. Maybe I'll even do a post on it later tonight or tomorrow. I'd love to hear what you think of this season.
- If anybody has tips on how to deal with a hardcore sinus headache, PLEASE tell me. After a week of constant pain, I broke down and went to a Minute Clinic (my doc is on vacation). Turns out I have a sinus infection and ear infection. Good news is that it's viral; bad news is that it means no meds & it can possibly last another 7-10 days.
