Happy Marathon Monday! To all my fellow runners that qualified, congratulates! Go out there and run the race of your life. I am far off from running a Boston Qualifer (BQ). But I hope that one day (even if I’m 90) I will.  Until then I’ll celebrate in the success of others. Here are a few of the most incredible and emotional BQ posts I’ve read:

It has been almost 30 years (1985) since an American has won the Boston Marathon!  If a yank wins today that will be a first for my lifetime. Here’s a shot of the last American man to own the title…
