Throwback Thursday: The Boston Marathon

Posted by Nick Pizzolato on Thu, Apr 16, 2015 @ 12:25 PM

On Monday, thousands of athletes will line up in Hopkinton, Massachusetts to participate in the 119th Boston Marathon. They will push their bodies to the limit as they travel across 26.2 miles and through eight towns before ending their journey at Copley Square in Boston. But they won’t be alone because over a million spectators will line the course, clapping and cheering for them.
