Today is one of the best days to be in Boston.
The weather may not be fantastic today, but it’s Boston Marathon day, and the city has been bustling with energy and excitement all weekend. For the past few years, Tim and I have taken the day off from work to be a part of the tradition and cheer on the runners, but unfortunately this year it just wasn’t in the cards for us. Instead, we’re rooting everyone on in spirit to trust their training, run happy, and celebrate this city.
Many of the people running today trained through one of the toughest winters in Boston history, and that in and of itself is inspiring. In honor of all the runners tackling the 26.2 miles ahead of them today, I thought it would be fun to round up some running related posts from past F&F material. Enjoy!

I also want to take a minute today to remember Martin Richard, Krystle Campbell, Lingzi Lu, and Sean Collier, who all lost their lives because of the 2013 marathon bombings and aftermath. Despite the scars that remain, I am proud to be part of a city that comes together through kindness and love. Boston, we are strong!
Readers, let’s chat! Are you running the Boston marathon? Have you been part of the race or crowds before? How are you celebrating Boston strong today?
