Nakking on Evans' Door

~*~

The home of the tumbling Nakki. She likes spaceships, comics, and lots of .gifs!

IRL her bailiwick is satellite and spacecraft design. She tends to rant about space and her job and science in comics... because it makes her happy.

She also really likes to run.

It’s so great to be part of such a strong community of runners.  It always makes these events such a wonderful experience.  It was blustering and cold at the start line but everyone huddled together and jumped for warmth as the start time slipped to 7:30.  And the opening speech rendition of God Bless America by a surprisingly skilled Boston Police Office was beautiful.  
The first mile was a bit of a mess with seven thousand people in the queue but it was  a fantastic run once the pack opened up.  Felt like I could do another 5 miles easily at the end of it.  I maintained 8:30 - 9:00 min miles the whole time!  I didn’t have to use my inhaler at all.  Clearly 42deg and humid as hell is the weather that I need to aim for for my first marathon later this year =)  
As I walked home through Boston Commons I figured I’d grab a quick pic at the Memorial Day memorial.

Looking forward to the Tough Mudder next Sunday!
