Go Runners Go!

It’s Boston Marathon weekend, also known as the best weekend to be in Boston! Last year at this time I was headed to pick up my race packet and snapped this photo of the Boston Marathon finish line. This year, I’ll be wandering around downtown cheering on friends and (hopefully) soaking up some sun.

Boston Marathon finish line

Last night, prior to and while attending the Taste of the Nation, I got to see the finish line prep, the race expo, and all of the fantastic, inspiring ads all over the city. I am LOVING the New Balance ads.

Once you’ve run the Boston Marathon, you don’t walk down Boylston Street the same ever again, especially past the finish line. At least for me, it is cool to live in a city where I have a constant reminder of pushing my limits on three separate Marathon Mondays.

I won’t get all sappy, I promise, but I am SO proud of every single person who will be out there on Monday, running for themselves, for charities, in memory or in honor of loved ones. The hard part, training through those long winter months, is over. Monday is their day. If you are a spectator like me, be loud! And if you are running, go out there and take in every bit of the experience, the ups and the downs all the way to the finish, and have fun.

Those cheers are for you.

And with luck, a year from now, I will be getting ready to run a marathon :)

    LOVE Marathon Monday! Last year was the first time in over a decade I wasn’t in Boston. Glad to be back for all of the fun energy!

    I can’t wait to watch the marathon from my TV on Monday – I have to work.

    Sounds like a lot of fun and if I ever decide to run a full marathon, I would love it to be Boston!

    I got the chills from reading this post. I’m planning on going this year to watch and cheer instead of run, too. Yay for Marathon Monday!

    I felt so excited for all of the runners when I was in the area yesterday. Looking forward to cheering on some friends on Monday!
