Happy memories from the Boston Marathon [Letter]

Editor: In the wake of all of the publicity about the Boston Marathon, I would like to post a happy memory. At half-way, a deafening gauntlet at Wellesley College, tough Newton hills, Boston College, UOB, Boylston, Brookline, Boston Marathon runners are cheered by thousands of baseball fans outside of Red Sox Fenway Park, and gallantly pressing past a huge red Citgo sign. Into the fray of Kenmore Square, we marathoners get one of the happiest, uplifting feelings in life, as fans applaud, scream, yelling, “It's Commonwealth Avenue and you've got only one mile to go.” James Myers Westminster
