The 11-year-old New Kids on the Block fan in me is giggling uncontrollably like a 90s dweeb right about now.
Joey McIntyre (or should I say Joe?) did his city a great service by running the Boston Marathon and sharing the most adorable photos of his accomplishment on his Instagram account for his fans. Joey might be 41 now, but you would never have guessed it by just looking at his most recent photos because OMG did he jump in head first to the fountain of youth or what!
Our boy successfully crossed the finishing line and celebrated his marathon run by Tweeting:
“3:48:11 baby!!! #BostonMarathon . Couldn’t have done it without you guys!! Big congrats 4 an amazing 3:50 by my man @dannywood! #celebrate.”
Days before the Boston Marathon, he also paid his respect to his hometown by writing on his Tumblr page:
“My heart keeps growing for this town,” the Boston native said of his city. “It’s such a privilege to be a part of this town. This race. This comeback. This home. Thank for helping me get here.”
Ok, can I just squeeze him now? Check out our photos from Joey’s Instagram account and tell us what you think. I definitely see why all of those New Kids on the Block reunion tours keep on selling out all the time! Also, if you’re not following him on his Instagram account, you must. Team Joey 4EVA.
