Way to Go Jean!

My sister is about to finish the Boston Marathon. She signed me up for an email tracker, so I've been watching her times all morning.

Running an average 8 minute mile for 26 miles? She's nuts! She'll be finishing in the next hour with a time around 3 hours and 30 minutes. I hope she gets a silver cup...that trophy would look great filled with peonies!

Update: Her final time was 3:37:18.

A 3:30 marathon would be amazing, especially on that course! Keep us posted!
