I ♥Boston

Tomorrow I board a plane to Boston for my annual Mommy Weekend in the city. For the past 6 years on Columbus day I run 6.2 miles with 8,000 other women around the Charles River. The Tufts 10K is one of my favorite races and this will be my 6th year running. Not only do I get to catch up with good friends, but I get to spend some quality time in the city I grew to love.
When we moved to Boston in 2000 I never thought we'd stay more than two years and I certainly never thought that I'd miss it so much once we left. 

Here are my top Boston ♥s:

  1. Fenway Park during baseball season
  2. Mr. Bartley's Burgers
  3. Nor'easters in April
  4. Summers working at Brimmer and May
  5. Watching the seasons change
  6. Brownstones
  7. Newbury Street
  8. Cheering on the marathon runners as they run by my house
  9. Learning the difference between Manhattan and New England Clam Chowder 
  10. Working at Children's Hospital Boston-The best job ever!
  11. Having groceries and dinner delivered to our door regularly (comes in handy when you're living on the top floor of a building that doesn't have an elevator)
  12. Running down Beacon Street 
  13. Public transportation
  14. The first snowfall of the year
  15. Dunkin' Donuts on every corner
  16. Blueberry Bear at Boston Beer Works
That's just a few of my favs! I'm sure I'll have more to add after my trip. Have a FAB-U-LOUS weekend and don't forget to check back on Monday for Soup Week!!!
