Marathon Monday

The marathon is your victory lap. It's the celebration of all your hard work and the months of sore muscles, sweat, and tears. It's the triumph over your inner voice that told you to quit when you didn't want to go on. It's high-fiving the kids on the side lines as your run past. It's thanking the volunteers handing you little cups of nuclear yellow Gatorade. It's 26.2 miles of happiness, pain, joy, survival, and success. This has never been more true than for all those running and cheering along the route of the Boston Marathon today. No matter if you've never run a mile in your life or you regularly lace up your sneakers and pound the pavement. Today we all stand and run together. Boston Strong.
