We have arrived! We were welcomed with drizzly gray skies, but I do not mind at all. I will take this over snow any day! I think the city still looks absolutely beautiful.
We left Anchorage around 1 a.m. Friday morning. The cheapest flights are always the red-eye flights. Grrr. I hope it doesn’t mess with my sleep cycle too much. The four hour time zone difference is also going to take a few days to get used to as well.
We had a layover in Portland, OR and then a 5 hour flight to Boston.
A few pictures from our trip thus far. . . . . .

Portland, OR. . . . .oh, how I wish you could have spent more time there—it was clear and sunny!
When we arrived in Boston, we were famished, so food was necessary. We met up with my sister—who had arrived a few hours earlier—at Crema Cafe. Kristy, my sister, had been to this restaurant when she traveled to Boston three years ago and has been raving about the sweet potato sandwich since.
I can’t believe we are actually there, and I can’t believe I will be running my 5th marathon on Monday—it is very surreal!!
If you want to follow my progress in the marathon text RUNNER to 345678 and enter my bib number: #10107.
