Marathon Monday recap

I realize it is now Thursday and I'm blogging about Monday but sometimes a girl gets busy with real life.

This year I had a group of friends over for Marathon Monday. I even made mango salsa (which came out really good). We had a few drinks and some light food and then headed over to Cityside for the marathon.

It was a beautiful day out and we got into the bar right away. Cleveland Circle is near the end of the marathon right after everyone has just come off the hills. Basically the runners are ready to be done at this point.


There were a lot more people than this picture let's on. I was trying to get a good angle for the photo but I guess you just have to be there.


Sam Adam's marathon brew. It's actually pretty good.


Koozy man. We talked to him for a bit. He had a pretty amazing backpack made out of koozies. He told us he is going on Shark Tank soon to try to get more funding for his business. He makes koozies with handles and makes the backpacks. I told him I think the backpack would do well. It seemed well made and it's a good idea for a bunch of koozies that you don't know what to do with. His company is called Koozy Designs.


If you've ever wanted to come to Boston, I suggest making the trip for Marathon Monday. It's so much fun.

    1. I couldn't get a good shot of the runners. Too many people on the sides watching, which is good! I'm glad a lot of people came out to cheer them on.

  3. I like the old clock in the middle of the photo.

    It has never occurred to me to go watch a marathon. Toronto has one almost every weekend over the summer, but I only know about them because I keep an eye on the road closures.

    1. Me too! I've always liked that clock.

      I think Boston is a bit different. It's a holiday so most people have off work that work in Boston and they block off a ton of the city to do it. I still think you should check one out though.

  4. Come at marathon time. Whoa, not me, my handsome lass. No matter where I go, my goal is to be there when others are somewhere else.

    1. It does get pretty packed. Most of the city has the day off of work and schools are closed so everyone is out and about.
