Ryan has been very vocal that he is running this race for Bob. The last marathon they ran together, Bob planned to run Boston 2017 with Ryan. While we lost Bob last year, we talk all the time about how we constantly see Bob when we are running. And we get excited but then remember that he's no longer with us. Yesterday I told Ryan, "I know you are running this race for Bob but don't think about it until after the race because you will cry." Ryan responded "I think about Bob on all my runs and I see him on my runs. I've cried before while running, it won't slow me down" 
It was a very warm day in Boston today, the sun was relentless with almost no shade on the course. Nevertheless, Ryan gave it his all and when it got tough he called on Bob to help him get through. While Ryan may not have ran a PR or the race he trained for, he is still happy with his time. He will still be running for Bob and I am one proud wife!
