Every year on Patriots Day, they run the Boston Marathon. And every year at this time, the individual winners are almost a footnote to the traditions of running.
This year was no exception, particular the long tradition of stopping to “visit” with the young women of Wellesley College.
It’s not good for your time, perhaps, but it’s a great reminder that there’s more to running a race than where you finish.
