The third day of our trip started bright and early, I went out for a 20 minute shake out jog, which ended up being closer to 30 minutes because I got lost! 😦
After finally making my way back to our home away from home, the moms and I headed to Palm Sunday Mass at the beautiful Cathedral of the Holy Cross. Being the early morning Mass, it was held in one of the smaller chapels, and randomly was a half English half German Mass. So half of what was said and sung was, you guessed it, in German. Random, yet fun! Mom and I were asked to present the gifts during Mass, which was a nice treat. I love participating either by doing readings, or presenting the gifts. I think we were chosen because we were by far the youngest people in attendance, and the only ones without canes or wheel-chairs.
After church we got the hubs up and around then hopped on the T and headed to Fenway Park for the Boston Red Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays game!
While waiting for one of the T’s, I snapped some photos of my favorite marathon posters. Whoever came up with these probably got a fat bonus check, I LOVED them!
We finally arrived at Fenway Park, the oldest Major League Baseball stadium currently in use!
Mom scored us great seats! We had a clear view of the Green Monster, and a home run landed just a few seats in front of us! The hubs had a wonderful time, even though he is a die-hard Yankee. There is just something completely wonderful about being in a place where so many amazing athletes have played, it was almost like you could feel their presence. I am a sucker for tradition, and sports-related historical landmarks.
We left the game a tad early, it was SO cold and windy, and we had to get back to the condo so we could whip up a solid pre-race meal, as we had some very special guests for dinner!

What a wonderful way to spend the day before the biggest race of my life!
