What I Did While People Ran the Boston Marathon

26,948 people were doing the unbelievable of running 26.2 miles on Monday during the Boston Marathon. I, on the other hand, was not. Let me take you through a long list of things that I did while runners raced through the cold, windy, and rainy course.

10. Promptly took a nap

11. Ate a donut for lunch

12. Pull out computer

16. Do literally nothing of importance for the rest of the day

17. Complain about how I have so much work

18. Look at marathon results

19. Wow, inspiring, I think I can do it

20. Put on shoes

21. Walk over to track
