I did not run Boston. I feel, though, that I endured, in some small way, the trials and tribulations of getting to the start.
Flo wrote eloquently (insofar as possible) about her empty Jif bottle on the bus but was strangely silent as to whether she actually needed it. (She writes, “I had my small bottle which I filled up twice during the race” but I think she’s talking about something else.)
Herb stepped into the breach. He’s only gotten to the start, but it was quite an adventure. Truly a descriptive masterpiece.
Plus lots of good race reports on Boston; just check the must-read links.
[Edited to add: I realize that I enjoyed Herb’s race report for NYC 2009, another item definitely worth a read.]
