This race is all about inspiring women to achieve their personal best with their fitness goals and celebrating women’s athleticism There were 2745 finishers.
I left my home around 7:30am. The race started at 9:00am. Getting into Boston was very easy considering there was zero traffic. I parked at the Hyatt Hotel near the Opera House because it’s easy to get in and out, and the Common is just a 3-minute walk.
I enjoyed this race a lot. The race management puts on an excellent well-organized race. Bib and shirt pick up was easy, lines for the bathrooms were not too bad, plenty of water stops, and the streets were completely closed off to traffic keeping us safe. The race started at the Boston Common, then runners headed west on Beacon Street, next we took a right on Massachusetts Avenue, looped around Memorial Drive and then we headed back to the Boston Common. The cityscape on the course were very beautiful especially the views of the water.
After the race there were grab and go snacks. Some of the snacks were bananas, race bars and packages of fruit chews.
I ended up finished at 1 hour 28 minute and 1second. I am pleased with my results. I think Strength Training, improving my diet (less sugary snacks has helped my overall performance. The cooler temperatures also helped me maintain a faster pace throughout the race.
Last year, I was 6 1/2 minutes slower.
Overall, I am seeing better results with my running performance. I am not speedy, but I have more running power.
