Had an amazing experience.  Was really special being a part of this event in light of last years tradegy.  The spectators present was amazing.  Wasn't my fastest time, but it was my fastest Boston time.  I'm pleased!  I kept to my race plan through about mile 18 then the hills started and the sun and temperature didn't help!  Slowed me down.  Most excellent memory.
