What a week!
I think I spent the majority of my week reading Boston Marathon recaps on blogs, Instagram, Facebook or anywhere across the web. So many amazing stories of pluggers and pure grit!
Here’s a few of my favorites:
Are you curious about who finished second in the women’s race? I think the whole world wants to know more about Sarah Sellers. I find it so awesome that she refused to upgrade to first class on her flight home to Arizona. And that she had to be home by Wednesday for her shift at the hospital.
We can thank Boston Bill for getting Yuki to run Boston. Did you know that Yuki holds MANY records like the most marathons world record for sub-2:20 marathons. He’s at 79 and counting.
Eighty five years old and her favorite post race recovery choice is a beer. Is it no wonder she finished on Monday? The picture of her from the Globe is simply amazing. I want to be like Katherine when I’m 85. #goals
I can’t forget the volunteers because a race can’t happen without them. I think the volunteers were even more heroic this year than ever. Tying shoes for runners that couldn’t feel their fingers. Cheering to boost moral. Showing up to get it done.
Losing faith in the human race? Spectate a marathon. How cool is this? I hope the two connect!
