I joined 36,ooo others Monday to run the Boston Marathon. I knew the day would be incredibly significant and filled with powerful emotion, that was part of the reason I wanted and needed to be there. The Boston Marathon is the most prestigious marathon, the cream of the crop, but the 118th running on April 21, 2014, was something all its own. With every step from Hopkinton to Boylston Street, I felt an overwhelming sense of love and support. I soaked it up and gave it back. It was truly an honor to be out there wearing bib number 13368, sharing the day and proudly doing my part to represent the strength of this awesome city and its amazing running community. Capturing the feelings of the day would take pages, so I decided to share my experience in images. A picture is worth a thousand words, right?!
And just so you can feel what I felt, here’s a little glimpse (in the form of a shaky iPhone video) of my moment coming down Bolyston street. It was so incredible and so emotional.
