Last week I promised some video clips with Meb Keflezighi, Here are three I think you might like: The Big Win, Training advice and a bit of comedy.
I’ll never forget moving through the finish area in 2014 and hearing people talking about an American who won the Boston Marathon. I didn’t find out it was Meb until later on.
The end of a marathon can be a little chaotic. Everyone is exhausted, there are announcements of the runners approaching the finish line. There is excitement and people yelling all over the place.
At the 2014 Boston Marathon
We just kept walking and walking. We got our medals. We got the new foil hoodie and some food and kept walking.
Before I knew it I was outside of the security area and headed for the Boston Common to retrieve my drop bag. I didn’t even realize I was just walking down Boylston Street without all of the barricades. And then I was.
I ran Boston in 2012 when it was 85º and all we worried about was the heat. In 2014 the temperature was much more reasonable and all we worried about was finishing strong.
See how Meb trains for his marathons.
New Balance is based in Brighton, MA. I shop at their outlet store in Brighton and at their Boylston Street location on occasion. I have picked up some great deals at the outlet store.
We are proud that Boston is their home and that they are growing their presence in Brighton, MA. Brighton is a neighborhood of Boston.
Run well my friends,
