In case you missed Boston like me...

So this happened.  I was out with family, so missed the whole race this year ( Sad ), but hey, at least something exciting came out of it.  Don't really understand the hatred towards a 2:30 marathoner who decided to essentially run Boston as a victory lap, but oh well.

I don't get the "hatred" either - I think it was/is kind of cool.  I know that Gobbles said he led the Publix half in Atlanta for a while and Nick led the race in Hamilton for a 1/4 mile.  Hey, if you can do it - why not?

We should love this because it defines this sport, one for "the people," that's why the community's resolve after 2013 demonstrates that you don't mess with "the people!"afro
