Boston Marathon | City of Boston …
Notes and well-wishes have come from every corner of the globe after the events of the Boston Marathon, but many of these messages are not weather-resistant. The more fragile keepsakes have been moved to the city archives in West Roxbury where they can be viewed, while items such as running shoes, stuffed animals, and baseball hats will remain in Copley Square for some time.

And they're off! The 118th Boston Marathon has officially begun and with it - over 36,000 runners making their way (sprinkled throughout the day) across the 26.2 mile long route. Not to mention, the one million spectators who will also be watching, cheering and rooting from the sidelines (ridiculous signs in-hand).

One Last Boston Marathon For Legendary Father-Son Team …
BOSTON - Along the Boston Marathon course each year, some spectators are there just to see Dick and Rick Hoyt: the compact, muscular man and his quadriplegic son, the father running while pushing a wheelchair all 26.2 miles. Team Hoyt, they're called, and they've been Boston Marathon stalwarts since 1981.

Each runner also carries his or her own memory of Boston: a pickup from a stranger when the runner's high fades and the miles stretch long; a beer chugged with friends along the route; an inspirational sign carried by a loved one; even something miniscule that happened at a roadside scrub tree, or a stretch of sidewalk.

The private beach, the cedar-shingled cottages, the wedge of chocolate cake on the table in front of them. Pieces of their first wedding anniversary looked much the way they imagined they would. And as Patrick Downes and Jessica Kensky celebrated in the dining room of that Chatham resort, they looked whole: Patrick in a trim blazer and pocket square, Jess in a sparkling white dress.
