The first group of men that came through the neighborhood. You can see this year's winner Gomes on the left, in the yellow jersey and black arm warmers.

On our way home we passed by this breakfast setup on Washington Ave, right by the sidewalk. Apparently it's an omelette station!
It was so inspiring to watch all the marathoners. The amount of training and dedication that goes into such an event is amazing and I only wish I had the discipline to do that again. And by "do that again" I don't mean run in marathons, I mean dedicate myself to training every day, even in the rain and snow. I also mean experiencing the thrill of competition. And I also mean feeling my entire body ache from hours of activity. I miss that.
Later in the day we watched 30 Days of Night. I only ask for those 2 hours back so that I can shove push pins into my face instead. That would've been a much better use for the time.
And, in celebrating our two years, I surprised Alex with dinner at Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill. Much meat and tequila were consumed. It was a good Sunday.
