Boston Marathon Today

My daughter Stephane is running in her first Boston Marathon today – please keep good thoughts about her today.  I am so excited for her.

The Boston Marathon is one of the older events, having first been established in 1897 and has been managed throughout it’s entire history by the iconic Boston Athletic Association or BAA. It is also one of the few races that has managed to avoid official affiliation with a corporate sponsor, which I think is worthy of note in this day and age.

Of course it is now an event that will forever be associated with the tragic events at the 2013 race, but the city of Boston has recovered incredibly well form that catastrophe and you would have to now regard this event not only as one of the most popular with athletes and spectators, but also probably the safest.
