    I get emotional watching people cross the finish line regardless, but all these stories are awesome. I can’t imagine being out there for 20 hours! How incredible!

    Have a great weekend Jen!

    Hey Jen! LOVE these tights. i assume you wear a small? just trying to gauge my size; do they by chance have a draw-string waist? sorry for the silly questions. Those videos!!!! how awesome!!!!

    Have you ever tried chocolate-covered coffee beans?!? Umm, so tasty! My MIL never misses an episode of Mr. Selfridge; I’m glad you’re enjoying it, as well! The video of Rebekah Gregory really got me; I saw an interview with her, after the race, on one of the big TV networks and I was in tears. What an amazing accomplishment and emotional day, for all of you! Hope you have a great weekend and take it easy on yourself, soldier! 😉

    OMGosh I looooooove those Nike tights!! I wonder if those are available in Canada. I will have to check! You always have the best run gear.
    Two other things – I, too, am obsessed with elephants! And I will never get sick of Boston posts. Thank you for sharing so much on your blog. It makes me really excited and motivated to get there someday.

    Have a great weekend, Jen!!
