Boston Bibs

Running Boston? Send me your bib # so I can track you!

The road to Boston is upon us.  Those 38,000 who have been training for April 21st are well into taper mode.  Now it’s time to rest up, hydrate, stretch, eat healthy and get in those last few miles.

I’d love to follow you while I’m biking on…
