Last April I wanted to spectate Boston. Financially, I couldn’t work it out no matter how hard I tried. However, I knew I was going to be there in 2011. I made a deal with a fellow blogger to run the 5k together. I was looking very forward to it, even a year ago when Boston seemed so far away. Often myself and this blogger would talk about meeting up- we emailed frequently, became close friends and over summer started making plans for Boston. I was so excited!
That friend was Rick. Suddenly, and sadly, Rick passed away in October.
Boston won’t be the same. Not without Rick. He was the whole reason I was going to do the 5K…we were supposed to toe the line together. And he won’t be there. However, I know I won’t be totally alone…something tells me that Rick’s spirit will be at Boston…he wouldn’t miss all his friends running for the world!
Boston is going to be a great time- I am looking so very forward to meeting all the amazing bloggies (especially Denise, Meg and Lindsay…I have been reading their blogs since the beginning!) and taking part in all the festivities. I have a whole heck of a lot jammed into two short days but I cannot wait! This is more than likely my last post until I return but when I come back I will have a full 5K report, a spectator report and lots and lots and lots of photos!
