Fitness Tip#212 - September 25, 2012

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

There are many other U.S. marathons, but none more prestigious (and few more difficult because of hills) than Boston, one of the country’s signature sporting events, attracting more than 500,000 spectators. Held annually since 1897, the event is the longest-running marathon in the United States and one of the oldest running races in the world. The race is held on Patriots Day, the third Monday in April, a Massachusetts holiday commemorating the start of the Revolutionary War. Unlike most marathons, Boston requires runners to meet qualifying times and limits participants to 25,000.
