2016 Boston Marathon Events

It’s the time of the year again! Where  I calm down and slow down and reflect back on my training. It’s too late to get anymore long runs and probably not the best time to go on a killer tempo. The training is said and done and all I can do is let my body rest up for the rest day. Luckily, I find plenty to keep myself busy during the two weeks before Marathon money. The first week, I’m too busy working (is it cruel that Marathon Monday and Tax Deadline are on the same date each year?) working to even worry about my lack of running. A forced taper is okay enough for me at this stage. The final week? Well I look out for events, close up lose ends at work, and anticipate race day!

Every year I try to put all the running related events together for anyone else that wants to get lost in the Boston marathon excitement!
