Claire: Boston Marathon 2K16

The Boston Marathon is upon us! For those of you who are not familiar with the Boston Marathon, it is a BIG deal here in the city. In honor of Patriot’s Day and the race, Boston University and most business are closed. So, that means everyone takes it to the streets to celebrate with friends and cheer on the runners.

The Boston Marathon has always been one of my favorite days in the city because there are an endless amount of fun things to do. The city fills with excitement and it is simply just happiness.

The race begins just before 9AM in Hopkinton Massachusetts and passes right through Boston University South Campus, Kenmore Square on Commonwealth Avenue, all the way to Boylston Street in Copley Square.

This is a day to set your alarms nice and early so you can meet up with friends for breakfast before the race begins at 9AM.  Then, you don’t even need to leave campus to be right in the thick of it. You can cheer on all 30,000 runners as they make their way to the finish line right on Commonwealth Avenue.

This will be my final Boston Marathon L tears I’m so sad what

Here is a picture of my first Boston Marathon ever, oh boy time flies.
