Two years ago, I was hunkered down in my apartment in a city under lock-down, as a result of the unforgettable events taking place at the 2014 Boston Marathon. Fast forward to now, in a city re-energized by one of the more exciting spectator sports in the world. Marathon running offers an incredible up-close view, at no cost.

While I’d rather savor a delicious donut than run a marathon, fewer things are more awe-inspiring than an elite runner burning by at top speed, a soldier paying tribute to the armed forces while running in full uniform, tireless runners pushing wheelchairs, and on and on. I’ll leave you to enjoy some of the day, in pictures:
