Today was going to be a recap of my rich history with the Boston Marathon. Blessed to have been closer than most with the pre-eminent road race in the world. Running it 20 years ago, the 100th. Working with the BAA putting on the 08 Trials, partnering with Dave to put on the 04 Trials. A whole corner of the Bar None Running Roadside Attraction stuffed with memorabilia from the venerable race.
But this is about you. Your Boston. Embrace it, race it, like it is your last, that is my best advice.
After nearly 20 years I finally found something worth reading in the pages of Runner’s World, anathema to Real Running that it is.
