Frontline workers to serve as Grand Marshals for 125th Boston Marathon



The Boston Marathon means everything to me. Honestly, it shows that this impossible is definitely a possible excitement in the air. It is as if the world is coming back to life. That’s really nice. A fresh coat of blue and gold paint on the floor. We cannot wait until Monday. The Golden Crowns of Greece are here for the 2021 winners of the Boston Marathon presented at the opening ceremony where the Boston Athletic Association recognized those who have changed running over the past 125 years, including the icon of the Dick Hoyt marathon, who passed away this year. Dad and I ran the Boston Marathon for 32 years together. A new award presented in his honor for those who make sport more inclusive. His son Rick, his running partner agreeing by video. I feel particularly honored that our father is the first to receive the award. The race organizers also recognize those who bring diversity and representation to the race, because a little girl who looked like me could see me doing the thing. I think that encourages him too, also encourages him to know, okay, I get it. I could also do it as well as riders like Christopher Vasquez novel from the Dorchester Pioneer Team preparing for 26.2, it was tough. I have been blessed. They are ready to cross the finish line regardless of the shape size background. Whatever your story, you always have the option to write your pages however you want right now. Now there are a number of covid precautions in place. Runners must present proof of vaccination or a negative covid test. In addition, the field is much smaller. This year, only 18,000 runners in person will depart on Monday, and although masks are not required during the race, they will be required during all race transport.
