Boston Marathon Week, Part 1


A couple of weeks ago we had a chance to travel to Boston, Massachusetts to attend this year's Boston Marathon, one of the oldest and well known Marathon to anyone who runs. Eddie, my boyfriend was running it for his first time so we traveled there with his sister and nephew to cheer him on.

This post is split on in two parts since there is so many pictures to share. 

This city has rich history, beautiful architecture and a number of things to do. It was amazing to see a sea of runners fill the parks as they trained or just ran for pure enjoyment of the sport. The weather was in the high 30s by early morning and then warmed up to high 40s or low 50s. For many east coast folks that is no freezing temperatures but for this Californian/Peruvian girl that is chilly! 

The first day we made it out to Fenway park, the home where the Red Sox's play. I am a San Francisco fan but the park was very welcoming and family oriented as is promoted. The smell of varies types of food options were DELIGHTFUL! One thing Eddie's sister and myself were disappointed that there were no Churros! When we asked around if any of the food stands sold them they looked at us confused so we had to explain what it was. We are such Californians! 

The day before race day we had a chance to drive around the city and explore Boston Common area, Chinatown and North End. All these neighborhoods showed the pride of the Boston Marathon. The homes around Beacon Hill and near Boston Common area were gorgeous like stop in time. Very similar designs I saw while I was in New York. 

Time flew by so quick and because our focus was on prepping for the Marathon we didn't get a chance to explore the city in great depths but somehow we still managed.
