At mile 24 I nearly collapsed. I stopped, propped myself up against a guard rail and still almost fell over. @chelsa said my face was ghost white. Off-duty state-trooper got me to lie on the sidewalk. Paramedics eventually showed up… with the stretcher!  (right) As soon as I saw that stretcher I popped up and was like “hell no, I have to finish this thing”. They took my blood pressure, I signed the waiver and with @chelsa’s help I hobbled they the last 2 miles.  Post-race diagnosis — severe dehydration/heatstroke. I should have drank 2-3x as much water as I did :/ #yikes

Boston Marathon 2013 -> Boston Marathon 2014
I finally wrote up some of my thoughts from the 2013 Boston Marathon. It was really cathartic to get this out of my head, especially as I’m going to run it again on Monday.  You can read my post here:

(I’m also raising money for Camp Interactive — which helps inner city kids learn learn tech & leadership skills).  If you can swing it, please donate as I’d love your help in reaching my fundraising goal!)
