First, I want to say thank you to everyone who donated to my run - I raised $415 against a goal of $300, so thank you, thank you, thank you! And even bigger news?! The run raised almost $220,000! That's a lot of good going toward some wonderful children's charities.
Before I show you photos, I want to say that I sort of cheated in the race; I did not wear a speedo. I opted for a modest coverup and went with some booty covering PJ shorts from Target instead. I wanted to be nice to those running behind me, and skipped the possibility of having my speedo ride up during my run. I also wanted to note that mother nature sort of cheated too. She gave us gorgeous temps in the upper 40s - that sort of defeats the purpose of running through Boston in winter wearing very little. That's ok though, I think it was a way to ease me into this run - I bet next year we get snow and temps in the teens. (fingers crossed... sort of.)
Without further ado, the 2010 Speedo Run, seen through my eyes.

So there you have it - one of the best races I've run in a while, and already looking forward to next year's race.
