The Boston Marathon weekend is pretty cool. For most of the last 30 years, I visited Boston, wrote about it for the week before, met with running leaders, and spoke to coaches, athletes and officials. The following week, I would head to London Marathon. I loved both and enjoyed the live events but also catching up with friends. This morning, 10,000 runners joined the elites in the BAA 5k. This is the first time in 3 years that Boston Marathon was held in springtime, on Patriots Day.
You can watch the race on Monday via Peacock TV.
