Monday, April 21st, 2008

The city of Boston hosts its annual marathon sporting event today. This prestigious sporting event is held today, Patriots’ Day- a state holiday in MA. The Boston Marathon is the world’s oldest annual marathon and ranks as one of the world’s most prestigious road racing events. It is managed by the Boston Athletic Association.

Amateur and professional runners from all over the world compete in the Boston Marathon each year, braving the hilly New England terrain. The course runs through 26.22 miles of winding roads.

The Boston marathon is New England’s most widely viewed sporting event. About 500,000 spectators watch the race live annually

Our Boston office salutes the runners in this year’s Boston Marathon.

Every Spring, the Boston Athletic Association depends on volunteers to assist with the event. If you are interested in volunteering for next year’s race, click here or email- worthing@baa.org

A Bumble Favorite- It’s B.Y.O.G Time.

Friday, April 18th, 2008

What’s a B.Y.O.G you ask? Thats what I asked when I first heard it from one mommy of our mommy focus group… It’s a Bring Your Own Gown and it’s absolutely darling!

Can you believe this a hospital gown? This so beats the used solid drab green ones the hospital dishes out to you on your big day.

 

 

It’s 100% cotton so its super soft. The sleeves unsnap for nursing and it unsnaps down the back to keep you covered up in all the right places.
