Ready? Set. Boston!

Are you a hardcore Boston Marathon junkie, or a newbie like me? In terms of media coverage, the Boston Marathon is the most popular single-day sporting event in the U.S. behind the Super Bowl. But, as a casual runner who only started racing two years ago, this American institution was somewhat of an enigma to me.

From the moment a marathoner is born (and often before), Boston looms on the checklist of potential accomplishments. But Boston is an intimidating marathon. First you have to qualify, then you have to get there, then you have to run 26.2 miles! To the non runner, finishing the Boston Marathon sounds like an idiot’s game rather than an accomplished distance runner.
