Happy Marathon Monday! First, we send speedy vibes to all our Boston-running readers and bloggers Basil and Chamomile as they toe the line today! May the forecasts of rain be wrong and may the easterly wind change its mine and blow you in all the way to Boyleston street. GO ALL YOU WICKED FAST RUNNAHS!
In honor of our most favoritist Monday of the year, we bring you this Boston flavored Readers Roundtable, the feature where we ask YOU to share your opinion on an important subject. Today’s topic, naturally, is the Boston Marathon. Specifically, we’re wondering what you think about runners who do not meet the qualifying standards but are allowed to run if they raise enough money for a charity. Does this diminish from the prestige of the race or is this a necessary expression of good will? What say you?!
