I'm back from the Boston Marathon and feeling great as I head to the next running adventure! Boston didn't go exactly as planned -- I set admittedly high standards for myself -- but I did the best that I could do that day and finished feeling proud and accomplished. So I'll chalk this Boston up as a mental victory and another learning experience and I'll cut myself some slack -- this is new for me -- as this was my best Boston time yet... (3:21 for those who just want the facts and I know who you are :).
So, now it's off to Easter Island, Chile! We leave May 30th for Santiago. While in Santiago and in it's surrounds, we'll visit vineyards, beaches and it's main port, Valparaiso. Then, it's a 5 1/2 hour flight west to Easter Island!!! We'll have time to visit the ancient ruins and see the fallen statues and sight see. There's a triathlon and a mountain bike race and towns to visit and of course, the Marathon on Sunday, June 7th!
