Fdip93: The 111th Boston Marathon The 111th Boston Marathon took place during a Nor’Easter, with major flooding, driving rains, cool to cold temperatures and a sustained wind of twenty miles per hour with gusts up to forty miles per hour. A record number of qualified entrant chose not to run the race, but the hearty few who accepted the challenge experienced the race of their lives.  This podcast was recorded as I ran the Boston Marathon.

Thank you, fellow runners, for all of your kindness.  In this episode of Intervals; I thank many of the people who helped me in small and large ways; I get some last minute advice from John Ellis and a surprise guest who formulated the plan that I followed to prepare for the 111th Boston Marathon; and we talk about the Nor'easter that I'll be running the race in (something I like to think of as a perfect condition rather than a perfect storm).  Have a great Patriots Day everyone!  As you listen to this, I'll be out there: running down a dream!
