Boston Marathon next Monday

Boston MarathonNext Monday is the running of the 117th Boston Marathon.  As with Easter, the Marathon is another one of those events I automatically associate with the spring season and look forward to each year.

In advance of the marathon is the Boston Marathon Sports & Fitness Expo at the Hynes Auditorium; starting this weekend on Friday from 2-7pm and Saturday & Sunday from 9:00am – 6:00pm. Nearly every athletic, fitness and nutrition firm you can imagine sets up booths to educate and sell their products. Vendors have special sales for the expo and there are usually some pretty cool freebies.

About the Boston Marathon (Source: Wikipedia)
The Boston Marathon is an annual marathon hosted by the U.S. city of Boston, Massachusetts, on Patriots’ Day, the third Monday of April. Begun in 1897 and inspired by the success of the first modern-day marathon competition in the 1896 Summer Olympics, the Boston Marathon is the world’s oldest annual marathon and ranks as one of the world’s best-known road racing events. It is one of the five World Marathon Majors.
