So this year I decided to go into Boston on Patriot’s day and see what the marathon was like near the finish. Although I was sad that I couldn’t participate in the race itself, (due to my injury while training) it was still an amazing experience. I couldn’t fathom having that many people cheer. Ever.

I was told while I was there that this year’s attendance was quite low due to the awful weather.

I can’t imagine what it’s like when the weather is nice. However after experiencing the crowd I fully intend to return to Boston in the future and to run it to find out.

Following the race, I met up with some old friends and ended up catching dinner in Boston. After many hours of great discussion, I wandered back to Olin just in time to sleep.

Monday was a good day despite the ugliness of the weather.
