Boston, Massachusetts and the Santa’s Speedo Run

Last weekend, we had a great holiday season trip to Boston, Massachusetts. There were several highlights, including the Santa’s Speedo Run. Unfortunately, I got closed out of this event. I couldn’t believe that it filled up so fast! It would have been my 38th race of the year, but alas, it was not to be. Since the temperature was 25F, I shouldn’t be complaining. I’ve got the Scrooge Scramble coming up on Christmas Day, but this one would have been fun.

On Saturday afternoon, the boys visited the New England Aquarium while the girls went shopping.

On Sunday, we explored many of my old neighborhoods. Over the course of the day, I saw each of the five places that I lived during my college career: 700 Commonwealth Ave., 24 Union Park in the South End, 1653 Commonwealth Ave. in Brighton, 90 St. Thomas More Rd. in Chestnut Hill, and 66 Commonwealth Ave. in Chestnut Hill. It was a blast revisiting the past.

During the weekend, we dined around Asia at Bangkok Blue Thai, Kashmir, and Shabu-Zen. Also on Sunday, we walked 10 kilometers, had fun at a great South End playground, and visited the Boston Common. It was frigid on Saturday and cold and rainy on Sunday, but that didn’t dampen our spirits. The holiday decorations were nice and the streets were bustling with people.

By  afternoon, it was raining pretty heavy, and after our fourth T ride of the day, the troops were a bit weary. We traipsed through Allston and Brighton, then hiked through the Boston College campus in Chestnut Hill, then over to the Green Line for our last train ride of the day. Everyone had a fine time.

Livingston Family firefighters. 🔥 👩‍🚒 🚒 When @trailrunningmom “smoked” the obstacle course AND added some push-ups for good measure, the Chief pulled out his business card and made a pitch for her to join the squad. I thought I was the competitive one, but she can turn anything into a competition! The kids had a blast too at family day.
From race directing to @thecubscouts directing. Proud day for our son, @trailrunningmom and the rest of #cubscouts Pack 157 Den 5 as they earned their Arrow of Light. Four of her boys are moving to @boyscoutsofamerica #scoutsbsa after five years of fun and learning.
