Now that we’ve talked concerning the working a part of Boston, let’s atone for what we did for the remainder of the time we have been there.
Saturday morning, we began issues out by assembly a bunch of associates at Tracksmith. This was my first time assembly Katie after following her for over a decade on-line. Ali and I met for the primary time earlier than I had Brooke, and we all the time get collectively anytime we’re in the identical metropolis. The friendships which might be constructed are my favourite a part of running a blog.
We have been at Tracksmith for some time earlier than heading to the end line space with Ali. We acquired in our conventional working image whereas we have been there.
Andrew and I then returned to our lodge and acquired prepared earlier than heading over to the expo. We stayed on the expo for a really very long time taking a look at each little factor potential. We additionally took benefit of any of the free therapeutic massage chairs, speedy reboots, and samples… I’m very grateful he loves an expo as a lot as I do.
This 12 months was the fiftieth anniversary since females have been allowed to enter the Boston Marathon. These ladies are unimaginable, and the anniversary made the entire expertise really feel much more particular.
Lauren and I additionally acquired to satisfy Meb! I requested him for a tip for the race, and he informed me to be affected person till mile 17, which was simply the recommendation I wanted.
After the expo, we walked round earlier than taking an Uber to Trillium Brewing Firm for a meet & greet with the individuals I used to be working with for my Amazon partnership. This collaboration was by means of my Instagram, however I’ve been running a blog about my Amazon favorites because the starting of my running a blog days! I didn’t take any footage there, however we ate loads of scrumptious meals whereas chatting with new associates and the individuals I’ve been emailing with for a bit now. After the meet & greet, we went to Ali’s stay present after which headed again to the lodge when that was over.
We stayed on the Hyatt Regency, and it was a few 5ish minute stroll from Boston Commons (the place the busses choose you up for the race). The situation was excellent, and I slept so good whereas we have been there (I slept 10 hours STRAIGHT on Saturday night time).
Random lodge tangent… I simply realized yesterday that when Andrew packed up my stuff to take a look at he thought the lodge blow dryer was mine… so we stole a blow dryer. Calling the lodge now.
Sunday was a bit extra chilly, and we took issues straightforward. We went to the expo once more, procuring on Newbury Avenue, and ate loads of carbs. I used to be in my lodge mattress from 2 on…. I felt so drained, and my greatest marathons occur once I keep in mattress as a lot as potential the day earlier than!
Our favourite eats whereas we have been there have been from Piattini (the breadsticks and the pesto have been terrific) and…
Parish Cafe on Boyleston. We additionally grabbed a bunch of issues at Dealer Joe’s to have within the lodge room and had pasta from Serafina delivered to our room on Sunday night time.
I used to be very completely happy to study that Levain was simply opened in Boston. I dream about this chocolate and PB cookie. I’ll say, my largest remorse of the weekend was not making it to get a cannoli. I’ll stay with this remorse for some time.
Once I initially discovered about having the ability to run Boston, I referred to as my sister, asking if she needed to go together with me as a result of Andrew and I had only recently gone on a visit collectively and didn’t suppose we may depart simply the 2 of us once more. My sister responded that she needed to look at our children in order that Andrew and I may go.

We felt very fortunate to expertise Boston whereas the youngsters have been in heaven with my sister’s household and my in-laws additionally for an evening too!
