What’s #261 Got to do with the Boston Marathon?

 

running = quality time

Twenty-four hours from now, I  will be joining loads of fans/viewers that will be watching the coveted Boston Marathon 2013.  From its humble beginnings, the Boston Marathon has become one, of just a few races,  that are the barometer of elite marathon races.  This is a race that welcomes everyone from the first-time marathoner to the most elite runners in the world.

   With so much diversity in the level of runner who enters this much lauded race, it’s hard to imagine that there was a time (during its humble beginnings) that the marathon was a ‘Men’s Only’ race.

Women runners can thank Katherine Switzer for being able to participate in this great race!!
