118th Boston Marathon

Boston Strong was the rallying cry and the Marathon showed the  resilience of this great city, with a great comeback after the bombings of 2013

For the first time in over 30 years an American,  Meb Keflezighi finished the marathon with the incredible time of 2:08:37

However we were not for Meb but for our daughter who ran with an enormous group of dedicated runners

Some street musicians livened it up

Huge crowds of people produce huge amounts of ...

At least they tried

It was quite warm on Marathon Monday, bad for runners great for kids
