Marathon Reflections

In sports by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

This year’s Boston Marathon was a miserable day for the runners. Most of them anyway. I’m willing to bet there are runners who enjoy running in 40° cold rain.

In sports by Robert Lussier2 Comments

Over the past 21 years the third Monday in April meant only one thing to me — The Boston Marathon. I ran it for the first time in 1994 and for (possibly) the last time in 2014. In those years I ran Boston a total of 17 times (completing 16). The years I didn’t run …

A couple of images to sum up my weekend. First (above) is a quick panorama of the “Frozen Fenway” game between BC and BU. I went with a couple of friends from work. This was my first attempt at a Panorama and I’m pretty happy with it. It was damn cold! We sat in the …
