NYC was fun, but I was ready to get home to see my boys. Our train left from Penn Station around 12:30. Sadly, it was delayed a bit. But luckily, not too much.
Paul and I settled in for the long ride with episodes of The Office, books, magazines, and of course the internet.
Here's a picture taken in Maryland:
Sitting for so long after the marathon definitely left me stiff and sore. When I would stand up to move around, it would take a minute for my muscles to remember how to work.
We had a brief stopover in Washington D.C. while they switched out the engine.
I thought this double decker train was cool:
We watched the sun set as we rode through D.C.
Check out the Washington Monument in the background:
And that little bubble behind the trees?

We didn't get home until around 10 pm. I longed so badly to sneak in and snuggle my soundly sleeping boys, but I restrained myself.
What a journey!
Special thanks to my mom, who took excellent care of the boys which made our trip possible.
And thanks to Paul, too, who is always willing to cheer me on in my running adventures :-)
