Tommy was joined by his fellow 2011 Marathon Men (except for Ryan Scanlon, who was notching his mileage in the Ocean State), and to commemorate, purely by coincidence, some of us broke out the swag from the 2010 Boston Marathon. A fashion gaffe, yes, but it gave us the air of looking like gangstas when running in another state.And to look the gangsta part, here's the chin stroke line-up to confirm it:Andrew crosses the bridge at Khazad Dum, and unlike the Balrog, he did pass.Barry was running so fast today, he was a blur.By the way, if you haven't checked it out yet, scope out Barry's running blog through the Lowell Sun at http://runningthevalley.wordpress.com/
When you're exploring new trails, it's always nice to have a map handy. Now if only they could read it.Troubled on a Bridge over Water:At one point, Andrew got separated from the group, but worry not - from out of the woods we heard the familiar locator cry of Carloooossss, and the E Streeters were reunited.At the end of his 1,000 mile trek, Tommy can manage a fist bump, but wonders where the perks are that come with being a member of the Mile High Club instead.That's not fog rolling in off these weary wanderers, it's steam.Congrats to all the extended E Streeter family for another successful year of logging the miles, whether it was running, walking, cycling, swimming, on streets, trails, bikes, or treadmills. On to the next 1,000!
