Some Photos from today's Marathon. Congrats Runners

The following quote sums up what I think running 26.2 miles is about. It also encompasses how special today's run is. Congrats to all runners and to Nikki and Patrick O'Neill and Meg Murphy.

Skiing on the Cheap

With lift ticket prices approaching $90-$100 for a one day ticket at resorts like Killington and Sunday River, it's understandable that I haven't been skiing in nine years. Nashoba had a great deal this past week though. A $2.50 lift ticket, honoring their 50th anniversary. This is what it cost when the mountain opened. It's basically a glorified Blue Hills, but Nashoba is close, and a good place for beginners to learn.
