Boston Marathon weekend is arguably most Bostonians’ favorite weekend of the year: spring is starting to feel REAL after months of cold and snow, and the sun shines bright for our Boston Marathon guests from around the world.
Since I’m a charity coordinator for a Boston Marathon team and have plenty of other work obligations in April, I am so busy that I typically let my running fall by the wayside. This year I decided to make training a priority, especially knowing I have to stay in good running shape for my first marathon – the 2018 Walt Disney World Marathon! As a result, I signed up for the B.A.A. 5K, on Saturday, April 15th. This was a particularly special day to race, as April 15th is also known in Boston as One Boston Day, a tribute to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. It is a reflective day, but also one of hope and togetherness.
