Running Boston Vicariously

I couldn't go to Boston this year, but that didn't stop me from enjoying the race. My coworkers surrounding my cubicle already know I'm crazy, but I'm sure that impression was confirmed while I cheered for Kara, Ryan, and the locals Monday morning. Here are some highlights I've stumbled across.

Kara making the turn from Hereford onto Boylston at the fire station.

Ryan throwing the first pitch at Fenway.

Elite fluids staged near the 30K point (from KG's 30K/20M pictures)

The Boston Globe has many great pictures
Merga Breaks the Tape

Tune collapses after being edged out at the finish line

40 year old Coleen DeReuck pushed the pace early

Jim Rhodes has volumes of pictures from 1 mile, 30K, and 20 miles.

And of course, here are some of my old Boston pictures.
