I love watching Thomas race...always pushing to do his very best! He is feeling much stronger since he started eating more to fuel his body!
Liz Wilson is in Matt's ward...we LOVE this girl! She came to cheer Thomas on :)

Let's just say, we are too old to be up all night ;)
Good thing we had the Expo to explore!
This expo was HUGE!! 2 levels and FILLED with so many vendors! We had a great time walking around enjoying EVERYTHING! We wanted to soak it all in!
The first woman to run Boston!
Hal Higdon...a running legend!
What can we say? :)
This was a really awesome manual powered treadmill. The woman who ran the furthest in 5 minutes got a free pair of Topo running shoes...I'm always up for a challenge! Oh, and I won! pretty sweet ;)
We loved exploring Boston...what a beautiful city and the most friendly people around!
We walked about 10 or more miles every day...not the best for racing a marathon but how could we miss out on Boston? Don't worry, Matt took some time to "elevate"
Standing in front of the finish line...what an amazing experience it was to be here; especially on year after the bombings. So many emotions! We felt so privileged to be a part of it!
The bagel shop was closed but they were kind enough to give us their left overs! Carb loading taken to a whole new level ;)
Sunday was spent going to a non-denominational church service...What amazing ladies these ministers are! We had such a neat experience sharing our beliefs about Jesus Christ with each other. They had no idea that we believe in Jesus Christ...We are more alike then they realize! What sweet, good Christian women! My testimony was strengthened as I shared my testimony of Adam and Eve...we are part of such a great plan!
We decided to visit MIT TECH
Resting those legs and walking around Harvard.
The hotel had this awesome good luck note and cookie medal waiting for Matt!
The big day was FINALLY HERE!!
Matt was ready to go!
This is at mile 24...he is so amazing!
Hardest marathon of his life but he loved it! They didn't have any GU until mile 18 so he was in desperate need of fuel. It was a beautiful, very hilly course, and a very warm day. There were 1 million spectators! Starting at the VERY BEGINNING! There were people cheering the entire way...how cool is that?!
Matt was a CELEBRITY! Everywhere we went he was getting VIP treatment. Even big guys who don't even run were patting him on the back giving him high fives telling him congrats!
I can't tell you how proud I am of this guy! (can you see the salt on his face?!)
Matt hung out in his race gear all day... showers are so overrated!
Tuesday we walked/ran the Freedom trail before having to leave for home...too bad we didn't have time to really take it all in...top of our list next time ;)
BOSTON, thanks for being so good to us!
we WILL be back!
