As you know, my sister and I will be running the Boston Marathon in April 2013!! We are stoked but have very little idea what to expect, so we need some advice. Advice on running the marathon, advice on what to do in Boston, places to eat, and how to get around the city.
Craig (my husband), Kristy (my sister), and I will be arriving on Friday (April 12) so that we have a few days to adjust to the new time zone (4 hours difference for me) and the climate (We could be talking about a 90* temperature change if it is anything like last year!).
So far, I know these things about the course:
– There are TONS of people cheering the entire way!
– The last 6 miles are downhill, so plan to train downhill on tired legs otherwise your quads will take a beating.
– Spectators probably won’t be able to see a runner more than once or twice??
Other than that, I need advice! Give me the details whether you have run the course before or you are familiar with the Boston area!
