9.5 very easy miles with my wife and pushing my son in the stroller.  We ran along West River Drive.  It was breezy but it felt very nice outside this afternoon.

I am taking the morning off tomorrow from work to watch the Boston Marathon via webcast.  Hopefully I can learn more about the course by watching the race.
