Marathon Monday

It’s Patriots’ Day here in Maine as well as in Massachusetts, with lots of attention being paid to the Boston Marathon. Congrats to all who ran and all who cheered them on, and special congratulations to the winner of the men’s division — the first American to win in decades and a nice way to cap this year’s event. If you are in Boston this week, be sure to visit the Boston Public Library to see the commemorative display of tributes left at last year’s spontaneous memorial in Copley Square.
The sun is shining and the weather was perfect for this year’s race

. I’ll leave you with one of my favorite photos taken in a small section of last year’s marathon memorial. If you look closely, among the Boston Red Sox caps and runners’ visors you can spot hard hats from construction workers, signed caps from visitors all over the country, and running shoes hung in tribute. If you haven’t visited this great city, I hope you’ll put it on your personal bucket list. You won’t be disappointed!
