It's that time of year again, folks.  Probably one of the most inspiring athletic events for spectators and athletes alike:  The Boston Marathon

And, as they say that a picture's worth a thousand words… here is what I can only describe as a few million words worth of inspiration to get you PUMPED for Marathon Monday – April 19, 2010. 
 

16.2 Miles to Go: Scenes from the 2009 Boston Marathon from Tom Lyons on Vimeo.

What a great tribute to the runners of the 2009 Boston Marathon.  Many thanks for sharing this with us, Tom. 

If others have pictures, videos or personal experiences they'd like to share with us from this year's Marathon, please do!  We'd love to see/hear them. 

Finally, to the all of the 2010 Boston Marathoners – GOOD LUCK!  Know that your dedication and athleticism are an inspiration to so many of us and we all wish you cool weather, loud raucous crowds to cheer you on, and a speedy recovery from this amazing feat you're about to accomplish!
