What a greta report! I'm so sorry to have missed your costume! I'm sorry I didn't make it to Via Matta...we needed someplace that was open sooner, so we opted to try out Bar 10 over at the Westin.
I'm so glad you got to enjoy the Children's Museum! It just reopened that very weekend after being closed for 6 months for renovations, and I can't wait to bring my DS there to scout out the new place!
What a greta race you ran. I'm always amazed at folks who are able to run in costume...that just takes an extry bit of fortitude of which I'm not capable. Maybe I just haven't had the right costume call to me yet!
Great read and great race by you, as usual.
I will begrudgingly pay off my gambling debts, since Tallrunner did officially finish ahead of you. Fortunately I am a wealthy, um, soldier, so I can well afford to spare the coin I lost on you.
However, for the record, I want to point out that you lost five minutes in the porta-potty. If not for that
not to mention the costume-induced overheating that led you into the fatal porta-pottyI do believe it would have been a horse-race. Since I bet on you, and I am naturallya good judge of horseflesh, I believe you would have prevailed. Next time, don't race in a clown suit, you knucklehead, or at least warn your bettors.

...and there to my utter amazement was a message in cookies that said “Go daddy, we love you, #3146.”
It's no surprise, PBJ, that your kids are so wild about you. You're so much fun!
You're too modest about what a terrific runner you are. Still, it's a treat to read your RRs. You have a knack for turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.
What a great Boston experience -- plus you got to see mc and Tall. I can't believe you had to trudge down 22 flights of stairs after running this race -- that's worse than two three hour dinners. But it sounds like it was all good. Thanks for taking us on your race with you.
Fantastic report and story, we expect no less from you and were not disappointed in the least. I would have love to see the Long Suffering and the PBJsters again, sorry we didn't meet up after the race but seeing you go by the aid station was a real treat.
Besides that dang are you fast even with the potty change fiasco!
Fantastic race and the funniest, most endearing RR I think I've ever read. I type LOL a lot, but your RR truly did make me laugh out loud - several times. Thanks for giving me a few giggles and lots and lots of inspiration.
With a 3:10 at the Boston Northeaster-a-thon, including the 5 minutes in the almost-tipping port-a-potty, you are so NOT a non-athlete! Congrats!
Hi PBJ! Great race! You must enjoy wearing customes during rainy events! I can't imagine wearing extra stuff in a race let alone a marathon! Sounds like an unforgetable time! I enjoyed reading your RR!
You are are jesterest Jester. You made 10s of thousands people smile in one day. Congrats. And you must be in awesome shape - I just walked down 3 steps & winced at each one. 22 flights? I would have died.

Congrats on your great finish at Boston. Even taking into account your "superlessman" change, ahh strip, in a porta potty. Sounds like you had a great weekend. Makes me wish I was there too.
