To celebrate, I'm posting some of my favorite media I've seen as of late concerning the race.
But first, big news... Last weekend we added a new member to our Boston-qualifying gaggle:

Never been to Boston and curious about what the course is like? Check out this awesome course overview courtesy of PRS FIT Endurance Coaching:
I love that he touches base on the importance of nutrition prior to the race start.
My two favorite elite females will be lining amongst the other elites on Monday. I love this article on Kara Goucher, who will be racing alongside teammate Shalane Flanagan. [On a side note, I got to have a long conversation with Shalane's mom at the Beijing Olympics outside the track stadium... yup, that's my claim to fame haha]. Maybe they'll be there next year and I can meet them.
