Today is Marathon Monday/Patriots day. Born and raised near Boston. It was a huge deal. Not only was the marathon going on but the Red Sox played at Fenway park and kids had no school.
I was streaming the elite part of the race on my phone this morning. Wow these people run with their hearts. It was amazing to see the times of these runners. Congrats to Rita Jeptoo of Kenya taking 1st place in the womans division finishing in a whooping time of 2 hours and 18 minutes. Meb Keflezighi from USA finishing the marathon in 2 hours 8 minutes. Setting a PR for himself and also the first American man to finish the Boston marathon in 31 years.
I sure hope that someday I will run the Boston marathon it’s been a dream of mine since I can remember. It may not be next year or the year after but I pledge to BQ for the Boston Marathon or if I have to join a charity I will run it.
