Its The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

It’s the best day of the year….Marathon Monday!
Much like last year, my friend and I headed over to mile 26 (with .20 left to go) to cheer on the runners. Such inspiring stories, I seriously bawl my eyes out every year!

Runners sprinting to the finish….


Runners helping other runners…..kids running Mom in….

….it’s just a magical, magical day!


Nursey and I shared a Blue Moon beer at Back Bay Social Club, in between cheering bouts.
A perfectly summery beer for this (chilly) sunny day!

After we were hoarse from cheering, we headed over to Caffe Jaffa, for some Middle Eastern food.


I had a small Greek Salad, Falafel, Baba Ganoush and warm, delicious Syrian bread.
So scrumptious, it was balm to my chilly soul.

After a bit more cheering, we made our way back to the South End.

    Salad – would love your comparison of the greek salad at Cafe Jaffa compared to the greek salad at Steve’s just across the way. Not sure how anything could compare to Steves, but what’s your take?
