Boston Marathon Weekend: 10 Things to do in Boston


Heading to Boston for Patriot’s Day Weekend? We’re less than two weeks away! I’m bringing back my list from last year, the Top 10 Things to do during the Boston Marathon Weekend! Here goes…

  3. Track my progress as a way to look back on my accomplishments post-race! 🙂

I plan on being as honest as possible about the ups and downs of a training season, and what it takes to physically and mentally prepare yourself for a marathon (or try at least!) So to start…
