For many runners a marathon is the ultimate achievement. Regardless of the reasons they began to run, at some point, they decide to go for that all-important marathon.
One of the world’s most popular marathons is the Boston Marathon which had its 114th running on April 19, 2010.
As many people know, you have to qualify for Boston. This means that you have run another marathon that has a course certified as Boston qualifier in the correct time period for the Boston Marathon you hope to enter.
