Checking in from Boston

Thursday night, just into Boston proper after spending a couple of days in nearby Waltham. That was where we stayed for the Olympic trials in 2008. There are a lot of beautiful running trails and it's away from the hustle and bustle.
But tonight we had to brave the traffic and come into the city. Tomorrow is a press conference here for the Boston Marathon elite runners. I'm not the big story here, I'm flying under the radar so I don't imagine I'll be asked many questions.
We came to the East Coast early in the week. Quin is such a champ now, almost 2, he has his own frequent flyer number and gets credit card offers in the mail. He walked through airport security on his own. "Shoes off," he announced before going through the scanner.
While I meet the press Friday, Quin and his dad will be enjoying the zoo.
I'll share some more thoughts later, there's lots to experience and lots to think about as the clock ticks down to Monday morning's starting gun.
