Since I'm heading to Boston today, you get a mish-mash of marathon links I have found especially interesting! I hope you are having a relaxing weekend that allows you to check some of them out!
Yesterday I let you know how you can track me at Boston. I just found out there is a free Boston Marathon iPhone app you can use to track me. My bib # is 15306.
Also, I know I try to stay on top of reading blogs and responding to comments, but I may be MIA until Wednesday. I will still be posting each day (I have some stuff already written up), but I won't be online much. I don't have internet on my phone or anything. I'm sure you will survive without me!
