After watching friends run Boston today from the comfort of my laptop, I'm more excited than ever to join them in 2009, as planned (fingers and shoelaces crossed). Here's an article from Runners' World today about the approach to Boston's finish line. My favorite all-time memory from marathon running is 2006 in Chicago, turning off of Roosevelt and onto Columbus. The crowd was going nuts, I was running 7 minute miles, and my wife and best bud were right there, completely ecstatic. There may have even been a tear or two.
I can only imagine what Boylston will be like in 364 days.
