The Elites...

This by far was one of the highlights of Boston for both myself, my hubby and my son..
Meeting Desi!!
Chase was nervous to talk to her and ask her to sign his poster...I think it was the whole she is an Olympian thing! ...I absolutely love Desi and how humble she is.  I cannot wait to see what her future holds and I know she will kick butt once she is fully recovered.  She is my idol for sure.

Love her!
By this time Chase had definitely warmed up to the Elites!  Meb is truly an amazing person as well as runner!  He said many kind and encouraging words to Chase and spoke about his injury.  Truly a class act!  And he has superhero powers look at that glow on his chest...Haha!
Ryan Hall!!
 This was Chase's favorite!  Meeting Ryan Hall and having him sign his brand new Asics running shoe!  Chase was very excited for this moment and knew that Ryan is part of team Asics.

I cannot wait to see these three amazing athletes race in the future!  All three are incredible role models for our youth and this has sparked Chase's desire to run!  Yay!!

Olympic Gold Medal Heather O'Reilly
We were walking through the Prudential Center having mommy and son time when we ran into Olympic Gold Medal Soccer star Heather O'Reilly...So cool!  She signed a picture for our soccer star Cam!  Big brother points to Chase for having her make it out to Cam! 

Dean Karnazes
While walking into my corral who is standing there next to me...My good buddy Dean Karnazes!!  He is a super star ultra marathon man!  We chatted for a bit and he said he ran from the finish line on Boylston to the start in Hopkinton... yup he ran 26.2 to the start and then ran 26.2 back!   Amazing!!!!  I adore him and his abilities and this makes me want to run an Ultra in the future!

So as you can see we had an amazing couple of days in Boston and will cherish these memories and look at the good things we did! 

Boston Strong!

Happy Running!
