To keep the rhapsodizing about the Boston Marathon anniversary to a minimum, I don’t want to write up a bit emotional post about it (which I kind of already have done…), but I do want to acknowledge the day in some way.
The Marathon is a huge deal at my alma mater Tufts (I think Tufts sends one of the biggest charity teams every year), and this video is just wonderful. It’s so nice to see my old co-worker Alonso (and Coach, to an extent!) have the opportunity to get a re-do from last year, or test their resolve in running their first marathon, like Courtney is! I’m cheering for everyone on the TMT, but especially for those who didn’t get to finish last year.
my dad was on the tufts marathon team in 2010 and i was lucky enough to watch him cross the finish line. the marathon is an institution in boston but also at tufts. i’m glad there are so many returning runners that are going to be able to complete their journey from a year ago.
