1,000 Words: The Marathon and the Wellesley kids

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.

    Best day of the year to live in Boston. (St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t even come close.)
