Boston's Freedom Trail

It was a fun day seeing the historic sites of Boston.  I walked the Freedom Trail and it basically takes you through the history of the American Revolution as it began in Boston.  I was also able to see parts of Boston Common, Beacon Hill, North End, and Charlestown. Luckily it never got worse than a light drizzle throughout the day allowing me to get through the entire trail.

It's time to rest the legs (tired from all the walking) for tomorrow's Half.  A blog update coming tomorrow with race day pics and details.
