It is Marathon weekend in Boston with the 112th Race scheduled for Monday, Patriot's Day (April 21). Just walking around you can see that the city is abuzz readying for Marathon Monday. This is another tradition I love about Boston and look forward to each year. As with Easter, the Marathon is another one of those events that I automatically associate with the spring season. I hope the weather is sunny and a bit warmer than the mid50s that is forecast.
In addition, I'll be going to my first Red Sox game of the season so I'm really looking forward to the long weekend and hope to have a lot of fun cheering for the Red Sox and then visiting the race to look for my friend Paul who is running his first marathon.
