Back in October, Brent ran the St. George Marathon with a finishing time of 3 hours and 6 minutes, which qualified him to run the famed Boston Marathon. So, this April, we braved the humid and cold Boston weather and joined some good friends for the race of all races in a city that we had never previously visited. We had a blast eating lots of delicious fresh seafood, visiting historical sites, seeing a performance by The Blue Man Group, and paying a visit to Harvard over a four day weekend. The race, of course, was the highlight of the trip. Brent had a great run and really enjoyed the immense support along the race course. The Wellseley girls even formed a screaming tunnel for all the racers to run through and offered kisses to those weary at 17 miles. Brent, of course, declined respectfully. Here are some pics.

I had a lovely time in Rochester with Steve & Liss and the kids over my spring break while Brent was tirelessly studying for the boards. They really treated me! Liss took me to an amazing flower show and showed me around Minneapolis. I got a personal tour of the Mayo Clinic from Dr. Steve. I got to jump on the trampoline and play with the kids in the yard. We ate at fantastic venues and made some fantastic meals of our own. I know this was awhile ago, but I couldn't let it slip off the list of events this spring! Thanks to the Minnesota Fowlers and their impeccable hospitality!
