The Boston marathon yesterday was so much fun to go to and watch! My friends, classmates, and I headed out to Wellesley, MA and were right around the half way point. We got there too late to see the really elite runners, but we still got to see people that were booking it. It was absolutely insane to see so many runners overall! And it was incredible how fast some of these people were going, and they didn’t even look like they were being challenged!
I applaud every single person that was out there yesterday. It was almost 90* and the sun was shining without clouds to offer some shade. It was also really entertaining to see so many people dressed up in costumes. For some reason, there were a lot of runners that had hamburger costumes on? Priceless. Apparently there was also a man running in a thong, but of course he went by when I was in the bathroom haha. So sorry, but I don’t have any pics of that for you.
Speaking of pics, here are some of the many I captured yesterday!
LOVE this picture. That man has a double amputation and is running the marathon….totally awesome!
Look at all of those cups! I can’t believe no one tripped on them. Although, some man that was running the marathon decided to dump the rest of his water onto my head instead of just on the ground?! Not sure why haha…but hey, it cooled me off a bit :).
I’m so happy that I went to watch the marathon. It was such a cool experience. Not gonna lie, it kind of made me want to run a race. And by no means does that mean that I want to run a marathon. I’m thinking a 5k might be nice :). I have no desire to run super long distances, but I think that experiencing the rush of running a race and being surrounded by cheering spectators would be awesome! We’ll see!
Anyway, I hope you all have a great Tuesday!
Have you ever been to a marathon to watch? What did you think?
