I look at my cell phone and it says 7:03AM. I am NOT a morning person, so I am wondering why I’m awake so early on a Friday as I walk up to Fenway Park. Someone greets me at the entrance, excitedly asking, “Do you want a hug?” I am here for the complete experience, so I say yes. The music is already bumpin’ as I take the escalator upstairs. There is a dance floor at the top of the escalators and a lot of people scattered around, chatting and grabbing some healthy snacks and beverages. People are slowly trickling in from the 6AM fitness class (this was way too early for me, but apparently not for many other people). The dance party has not really started yet, so I walk outside to an amazing warm spring morning and a breathtaking view of an empty Fenway Park as the sun rises. OK, this ISN’T a terrible way to wake up.

Being a PEMBA is challenging. There’s no doubt about that. Working full-time and then having to sit in class for 3 more hours? What keeps me sane during the week is going out and exploring all the fun and unique things that the Boston area has to offer.
