So many moments make up a marathon. All uniquely personal, but when looked at together they truly embody what it means to #BeBoston. Here are some of our favorite 2017 Marathon Moments!

The moment I’m most looking forward to is the adrenaline at the start line- there is no better feeling than the excitement rushing through your body before a race. #BeBoston

I love standing at the start line reflecting on all of the training that I put in. The nervousness you feel while you wonder if it was enough. And then, the finish. You know everything you put into it paid off and it is an emotional moment. #BeBoston

I love the reaction I get when I tell someone I am training for Boston. The smiles, the high fives, the pat on the backs! I love the challenge of training for Boston IN Boston – the snow, the ice, the sun. Most of all, running for a charity under John Hancock, my favorite moment is the overwhelming generosity of the people who are supporting me. People surprise you. It has been incredible! #BeBoston

My favorite moment leading up to the race was receiving my acceptance letter in the mail. I don’t think it was real until I opened the piece of paper that said, “Congratulations, you have been accepted into the Boston Marathon for 2017.” It was an amazing feeling! #BeBoston
