Living in Massachusetts, Marathon Monday is always a big deal. Living in Massachusetts, temperatures in the 80's on April 16th are also a big deal. Temps in the 80's on Marathon Monday...a very big deal!
This year, I had a friend from Washington state running the marathon. I was originally planning on taking today off of work to hang out with his wife and watch him run. (I used to work with them when I lived in Washington and haven't seen them in 6 years) Unfortunately, this week also coincided with a conference I am attending at the end of the week and it really would have been too many days off. So I hung out with them over the weekend and checked his progress on the marathon website. (he finished and is doing well)
Lucky for me, though, a number of my afternoon patients decided to play hookie on this lovely day which meant I got to sneak out of work a little early and had a lovely walk on the beach in my bare feet as the sun set.
Life is good.
