|Bob, Ted, and Frannie at Boston|
I actually walked the course twice as a grad student. There was a 20 mile walk for hunger in Boston that used most of the same course. Nowhere near the same level of excitement, yet at the same time, we were all thrilled to be out there walking, raising funds for the homeless shelters in Boston/Cambridge, building a sense of community, and I suppose being able to say we walked the course of the Boston Marathon, well at least 20 miles of it. I also remember barely being able to walk the next couple of days!
(If I do run Boston in the next year or so, it will probably be because I want to run it with Kate. I predict a qualifying time for her very soon.)
