Today my mom did her "long run" for her marathon in May. She ran 18 miles. To add excitement to her run she started it at mile 4 of the actual Boston Marathon course. Dad, (sigh) Riley, and I were there to support her with water and energy gel every few miles. Luckily the weather was nice and sunny today - not like the weather depicted in the photo above. I am sure mom would not have made it if it weren't for my aid...and cuteness...cheering her.
