I felt I needed to be on hiatus for a bit after the bombings at the marathon. I didn't feel right writing about anything good or bad or indifferent. And there has been a lot of good in the past week and a half (A. LOT.), trust me.
Saturday, I spent the day cheering on the MacMudders at a Muck Fest located at Fort Devons, in Ayer. My sister, brother and a bunch of excellent (much braver than I) friends and family ran a muddy 5 mile obstacle course in honor of our friend Steve who has MS and was diagnosed in his 20's. I volunteered to be team photographer, trust me when I say that was a good move!
I have to say my brother spent quite a few minutes debating on whether or not this obstacle was a good idea. I give him credit, I would have happily skipped right by it.
The cute factor kept me busy for the hour we couldn't see the course. R had lots of good advice for Fin, Fin enjoyed some fresh leaves and R was practiced her dance moves on the infield.
Everyone in this race was amazing. Here are the MacMudders crossing the finish!!
Take that MS!
