Sights of the 118th Boston Marathon

We had a very successful weekend up in Boston.  Hell, everyone did.  Even if you ran poorly, you still had a very cathartic Patriot’s Day.  There was a lot of emotion in the crowd, the energy was high, and the race went off without a hitch.  Meb Keflezighi became the first American winner since before I was born.  Shalane Flanagan ripped through the first 30k before falling apart, but not before an American record on Boston.  Overall, just a spectacular weekend.

On top of that, TrainWithMarc had 3 ladies represent on the streets on Boylston.  Mallory came in first wit ha time of 3:39:07, Carly with a 3:40:53 and Allison with a 3:44:42.  I couldn’t be more proud of the effort they put in.  All coming from different points in their lives, with different goals, but all pulled together nicely to represent a small portion of the finishers supporting #BostonStrong.

And now… Some pictures from the weekend with more to follow throughout the week.
