|Lots and LOTS of People!|
The entire point of today's travels was to pick up her packet, and try to show me what to do. The Expo was a zoo as expected.
|Packet Pickup. Guy had a Boston Accent. Awesome!|
|Cheryl tries on the race Shirt|
|Hmmm. Try posing a little....|
|Cheryl Finds the Prize!|
|Oh! It comes with a Jacket?|
|After Boston, that is.|
|4 More Cities to Go!|
|Kids Marking up the Poster!|
They offered Graffiti lessons for the Criminals and Children in the race. Cheryl is no child, but felt that she was still qualified to add her mark on the poster.
|Cheryl steps in to "Tag" the Sign.|
(Given the loose definition for Vandals) Not wanting her to commit a crime alone, I recklessly joined in! Because I'm a Rebel! And I want everyone to Know! They Don't call this the John Hancock Race for no reason.
|My act of Defiance! That is how I back Cheryl up.|
|Cheryl Runs on Donuts|
The only problem was.. Are there any Dunkin' Donuts in Boston?
|And so does BOSTON!|
|Time to get begin Faze two....Or three. I lost count.|
The answer was surprising. There are MORE Dunkin' Donuts in Boston than STARBUCKS! That is NOT an exaggeration. There were literally Dunkin' Donuts across the street from each other. And there is a simple reason for it. Boston is the Dunkin'Donut Headquarters for the country....Maybe even the WORLD! ( Ok, Maybe not the world, But definitely the country.)
|Not the Hamptons?|
|Let's see the water.|
|At least we can walk on the sand.|
|And pick up junk.|
|And show off common treasures.|
Cheryl has this romanticized idea of what the Coast of Massachusetts should look like. The actual truth is a little more boring. To be fair, we did not check out the Hampton, Martha's Vineyard, or Cape Cod. "They" probably would have never allowed us close enough to even touch the beach even if we had been able to go there. ( And when I say "They" I mean: Rich People.) The public beach we settled on was nice enough. Only one shark attack while we were there. And Cheryl was able to do a little beach combing. We scored some shells and a sea glass marble. Currently the marble is her more prized possession.... At least until tomorrow.
|Like this rare Blue Frosted Marble Beach Glass. Wait a sec.|
|Or this dead thing.|
|On to the Finish line!|
|Next to the House next to the Finish line.|
|And this sign. It should be easy to see from here.|
|Cheryl stops Traffic! Or is being cited for J walking.|
|New Sign! New Year!|
|What does the "J" stand for anyway?|
|My Military Uniform for this mission|
|An Army of ONE!|
