There were lots of kids activities going on at Patriot Place: sand play, coloring, face painting, golf putting, etc. We mostly stuck to window shopping and then moved on.
|Sand play near check in!|
|3 homemade red sparkle skirts getting ready to run!|
|They had all of the kids & parents sit in the stands by age group. |
They were sweeping the stands and putting kids up on the jumbo screen.
|The Patriot's mascot was out and about meeting the runners.|
|I could not resist! My little runner took this picture!|
|This guy was right behind me at the start. Love your shirt!|
|Here we are with like .5 miles to go! All we need to do is get back inside the stadium!|
|Headed back into the stadium!|
|Hear comes the helmet|
|Every now and then, if you run with a camera, you will take a shot like this. |
Look mom I am running in Gillette Stadium!
|Across the line and looking back! |
All the fans were in the stands watching their runners
enter the stadium and cross the line on the jumbo screen!
|I finished (and there were no medals) :(|
A football or helmet shaped medal would have been great! Maybe next year.
|Loved the kiddie pools after the finish line.|
|I wanted to climb right into this one. |
I can't believe no one was sitting in a pool.
I am thinking that there are a few ice machines at the stadium.
|No medals, but great snacks! |
Thumbs up to the snacks!
|Final goodbye shot to the stadium|
There were still 5k runners finishing with me, which was confusing. I wish they would have kept the course split through the line. Slower 5k runners were mixing in with the 10k runners and it was just awkward right as we were all focusing on finishing.
