Back when I was in college, we used to drive down to Boston every year on Patriot’s Day to watch the Boston Marathon (us and the other millions of people watching). I went to school with friends who were from the area so they always had the sweet spot for spectating. I remember two specific marathons vividly. The girls that I would watch with were some of my very best friends in school and also runners. My friend Katie’s dad ran his first Boston and we were there to watch him. It was a pretty amazing experience to watch a man who had just gotten into running conquer such an amazing goal. Since that time, Katie has run every single Boston with him and this year ran her 10th consecutive Boston marathon raising money for Dana Farber.
