One of my close running friend’s joked this past spring that if she ever qualified for Boston we would have a huge Boston Party at her house. She worked very hard this summer and did it! With Kem and I qualifying in December, Shannon qualifying in April, Tish was the 4th one to qualify when she ran in July. Then we discovered that almost as hard as qualifying itself, was finding a night that all 4 of our families were available for the special occasion. This Saturday night was the Boston party. It was great! After dinner the kids had fun swimming in Tish’s pool. Between the four of us we have 10 children- and one on the way! I am blessed to have such a great family— and running buddies!
