|Smiling the night before Boilermaker!|
We got there Saturday, just in time to catch the tail end of the expo and pick up our packets and race bibs. Once we left the expo, we headed to the hotel, and took in some pool time to just chill out a bit before dinner. We enjoyed some fabulous carbo loading at the always wonderful Micheal T's in New Hartford, NY. Kevin enjoyed his first experience with Vodka Chicken Riggies while I feasted on rigatoni and meatballs. Once we were done with dinner, we headed back to the hotel to prep for the morning and relax watching the Red Sox game!!)

|Post Race Party!|
Once we met up, we headed to the finish party, got some lunch (PB&J...thank you Price Chopper) and met up with some friends of mine who had come in from Rochester. We celebrated, danced to Nik & the Nice Guys (so much fun to have them back this year!!), watched the military flyover, and just enjoyed our first post race party together!

We left the party around 11:30, headed back to the hotel to take a dip in the pool and chill our bodies before we got on the road to head home to Massachusetts. All in all, it was a fabulous weekend of running! Now on to MARATHON #3 TRAINING. Bring it on MCM 2012!
