Today is the 115th running of the Boston Marathon!
I get giddy with excitement on Marathon Monday. Christmas, my birthday…Boston Marathon Monday ranks right up there as one of my favourite days of the year.
I will never, ever, forget my memories from the three Mondays I ran in Boston! I start to reminisce, and can’t keep the smile off my face.

Unfortunately, I will have to wait until tomorrow or later this week to watch the three hours of televised coverage – I’ve PVR’d it – (TSN, starting at 9:30 a.m., if you’re local) because I’ve got my own Marathon Monday going on, today!
Today’s work schedule:
~ 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the store
~ 2:30 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. at another of our locations! Why did I agree to work this double shift? Because it’s a New Experience!
I’ll recap tomorrow!
In the meantime, go racers go!
~If you aspire to run the Boston Marathon, pursue your dream. The journey will be as rewarding as making it to the special race, itself.~
Will you watch the race, either on TV or online? Some people find it inspirational; others (ie The Brother!) liken it to watching paint dry. Tina‘s got Marathon Fever! A couple of her latest blog entries feature the marathon: Marathon in the Air; Spectator Tips for the Boston Marathon.
One year, I couldn’t find televised coverage from among our regular cable stations on our home TV - we had to go to The Huether and watch the TV there! Thanks to their satellite system, they could capture the feed from the U.S.! I’m so happy that TSN will show the race today!
