Was in Hopkinton all day yesterday with the team making final Boston Marathon preparations and making some appearances. Pretty cool to see the START line being painted but sad that it was not by our friend Jack Leduc who has done this job for the past 37 years!! However, as you will see in the photo, we have not forgotten Jack and had painted a logo on the street in recognition of his amazing commitment to this race over the years. I was surprised, too, to see that they painted a DM 46 for me…thought that tradition was going to end when Jack decided not to continue. It was fun, too, to make an appearance at the Hopkinton Public Library! Then we conducted our final Start Team Captain and Hopkinton Marathon Committee meeting. All good.

We are off and running…

Now, about that weather forecast….ugh.
