Sunset in Tempe, (Rainy) Sunrise in Boston

Just as Mary Posey (and other MM?) are waking up with sore muscles from competing in a day long Ironman in Arizona, Tim and crew are gearing up for the Boston marathon start (7AM our time) amid wind and rain in a Nor'easter storm that promises a high of less than 50 degrees for the day.

I was glad to see that Mary finished the race (I'm never convinced anyone can actually complete one of those things) in a great time of 14.5 hours and with a phenomenal total of $11,000 raised for charity (GO MARY!). As she is luxuriating (or moaning in pain) after her race with (I hope) a late sleep in and some sort of body pampering spa service, the folks listed below are hopping around in freezing weather ready to sprint for 26 miles. I, on the other hand, am just about to hit the pool for a leisurely one hour swim. Today, it's gonna feel easy.

Go Boston Marathoners!!!!:
Tim Sheeper
Mike Osmond
Tracy Fujieda
Lennard Hackman
Greg Johnson
Kirsten Kempe
