Boston Marathon 2010 – Memories and Images
Top things overheard during the race this year…
, a small “country” town near the starting line where NASCAR seems to have influenced the townsfolk. “Hey, there’s wheelchair number 24…Go Ashland Jeff Gordon!”
(before the 6 mile mark) where early morning alcohol consumption seemingly impaired the basic math skills of a group of spectators. “Keep it up, dude, you’re over halfway there.” Framingham
, the lowest point of the course where nearly 5 miles of hill climbing were soon to follow. “It’s all down hill from here.” Newton Lower Falls
, where a group of kids were evidently keeping count of the wheelchair racers who looked a certain way. “Hey, there goes another one with legs.” Natick
- My all time favorite, overheard several times as I struggled to climb several of
’s notorious hills. “Is it OK if I give you a push? You look like you need it.” Boston
Enjoy these three photos from this year’s race. Sarah took the first two as I rolled through
near the finish. I don’t look too bad for the miles if I do say so myself.
Here’s a funny story. Look closely at the side of my helmet in the third photo. See the purple flower sticker? Don’t laugh, I didn’t put it there. My lil’ niece,
I had a really great race this year and am already looking forward to 2011. Please join me!
