smilingrid: Mile 21

April 21, 2014

Mile 21

 About a year ago today, my city was rocked to the core when bombs went off at the finish line of the Boston marathon. The days that followed were full of so many emotions, so much confusion... but I don't want to focus on that.

This year, the marathon was even more exciting and energy filled than previous years! One of my roommates ran today, so the rest of us dressed in matching tshirts and got our cheer on!

Matching shirts inspired by my girl T Swift!

But before we lined Comm Ave, there were a couple of things to do on campus first!

a mob of people waiting for free things...

said free things...

and back to the room for sign-making and lots of pictures!

Then, it was out into the beautiful sunshine to psych up a whole bunch of strangers (and one very special gr8man!)

Woo hoo!!!

I kinda love my Canadian! (as proven by smooches!)

and my Canadian loves her Canadian!

you, sir, are killing it!

hi, Chris!

Many two-people pics!

AND HERE HE IS! You are so very Boston Strong, Gatsby, and we are all so proud of you! Great job, bud! Love you!


  1. That looks like so much fun :D And I love the short hair, it looks super cute!

  2. It was a blast :) So proud of Gatsby! And thanks, love! My short hair makes me so happy- especially when the heat starts rising in my crazy Boston weather!

  3. Aw this is so fun! Love that you guys all went out for support!
