What happens in Boston, starts in Hopkinton. In this episode I take my last 16 miler from the starting line of the Boston Marathon through the bottom of Newton Lower Falls. For those of us who will run the race, you’ll eventually come to Hereford Street where crowds will block your forward progress and urge you to turn right. You’ll run this short block with the screams of spectators echoing off the buildings and will finally make your left hand turn onto Boylston Street, with the finish line just ahead of you…with the promise of a well earned time and an ice cold beer there beyond the portal.
Thank you so much for your incredibly kind words, good wishes and thoughtful prayers in both emails and audio comments on episode 21 of The Extra Mile Podcast. It means so much to me that you’d take the time to wish me luck, and a happy taper. In the words of the ancient Romans: “Omnia vincit amor‿ (love conquers all).
