Continuing in the tradition of finding some obscure reason to declare a holiday to accommodate what is really happening (e.g. Evacuation Day - a city holiday - just happens to land on St. Patrick's Day), today is Patriot's Day. What? Your part of the USA doesn't celebrated Patriot's Day? Humph, we in Massachusetts, Maine and Wisconsin do (yes, Wisconsin) in honor of the Revolutionary War battles of Lexington and Concord.
Today also happens to be the running of the 112th Boston Marathon - 26.2 miles starting in Hopkington and ending next to the Boston Public Library.
Amazing Guy is running 10 minute miles so we hope to see him at mile 18 around 1:30. Then we hope to see him about an hour later around the finish line.
And of course, what running event does not inspire that 1982 classic?
Chariots of Fire. Am I the only one who noticed that Vangelis is smoking with a cup of cappuccino at his piano?
Feeling Patriotic today? Or athletic? Do sing along. But also link back please...
