WOW. WOW. WOW.

Coming FIRST in a marathon! And pretty impressive time too — 2 hours 40 minutes. Just 20 minutes shy of the winning time at the 2018 Boston marathon.

He is young. Very early 20s. I have known him since he was about 12.

I see him running most days. Sometimes I am also running, but he makes me look like I am walking backwards. Extremely thin and superbly fit. He would run 12 miles a day without thinking about it while I suffer running my 3.5 miles.

Family of exceptional runners — father & two sons; Drew the elder of the two. Father, John, is the long distance running coach at our local high school. He has run the Boston Marathon numerous times — including the year of the bombing. This year Drew will be running. I am so excited and happy.

I have talked to Drew about the Olympics. That might now be possible.

This is so great.

He runs by our house most mornings while I am still in bed. I know he is going by because the dogs go crazy.

This made my day.
