Race #4 of 2014 (My 43rd Finish Line): B.A.A. 5k – Boston 5K – Boston Athletic Association, April 19


I never thought I would run in a race associated with the Boston Marathon and/or BAA.  Today I was honored to be running the Boston 5k. It was an experience unlike any other. “Humbled. Grateful.

…that’s what I thought – You’re a douchebag and I hate you. You haven’t changed. Once upon a time, I liked you.
