Over at Boston.com, Chad Finn lauds the Boston Marathon as the best of sports. I couldn’t agree more. If you live in the area, there’s still time to get out there. It’s a cold and rainy year, but there will still be hundreds of thousands of spectators cheering on tens of thousands of runners. It’s worth your time.
Finn also had a great quote from Massachusetts native Shalene Flanagan, an elite runner who regrettably came up short again this year:
“I have fallen in love with this course. I had so much fun preparing for this race. I wanted to use that as an advantage,” said Flanagan. “I knew every little divot in the road. I knew where every Dunkin’ Donuts was, where every Wendy’s was.”
You can tell Flanagan is a local because she navigates via Dunkin’ Donuts.
