The Unspoken Rules of Being a Badass: A Runner's Guide

Incident on Boylston Street





As the third Monday in April approaches, the memories return.

Amy Dodson and I trundle off to the packet pickup and expo in the Hymes Convention Center around the corner from my hotel. This run is a celebration for Amy. The previous year, 2001, she became the first woman leg amputee to ever run the Boston Marathon.

We pickup our timing chips, number bib, Boston Marathon tee shirt – a prize for any runner, yellow this year – and a bag of free junk. Then we head into the expo section looking to buy more junk – souvenirs and running stuff. It’s all part of the Boston experience.

Finally we head off in search of lunch, but first Amy wants to find a grocery store where she can buy some breakfast snacks. I know where one is, half a block away on Boylston, toward the very finish we’ll both ache for tomorrow.
