Boston Marathon Fever

April 23, 2009

This past Monday was the 113th Running of the Boston Marathon. I can’t think of a more inspiring day in Boston! Below are some of the pictures I snapped from volunteering at the LIVESTRONG booth at the marathon Expo as well as some race pictures in Kenmore Sq.

Enjoy!
