April 21, 2014, Boston held the annual Boston 26K Marathon interrupted in 2013 by mayhem. The days preceding the running of the oldest marathon in the world and during race day itself were beautiful, sunny with just enough of a breeze to be cooling. Happily, the 2014 event passed unmarred and 36,000 runners and 10,000 volunteers brought this awesome marathon to a beautiful finish.
While in Boston, we caught up with Meaghan O’Neill, a returning runner and her husband Michael, who had just published his first book, At The End Of Meadow Street, available through Amazon.com.
On Easter Sunday, we also met up with Manuela and Vincent van Ulzen , friends from a Jungfrau Marathon, who came all the way from Zurich to re-run the aborted 2013 race.
