122nd Running of the Boston Marathon

122nd Running of the Boston Marathon

On Monday, April 16, for the 122nd year the Boston Marathon once again made it’s way through the streets of Newton. The day was cold and wet and kept the crowd size down on Commonwealth Avenue to the smallest in recent memory. As the wheelchairs passed through the city… the area near city hall was surprisingly sparse. As time wore on more people showed up to watch and cheer the runners on. A group from Pasadena, California had a tent setup on the corner of Comm. Ave. and Walnut Street and was cheering on about twenty members of their club who were running that day. Despite the awful weather many said they expected to return and watch the event again.
