Everyone will be in Boston this year for the 2014 Boston Marathon.

After the bombing at the Boston Marathon last year, the number of news outlets that covered downtown Boston within eight hours of the event could not be counted.

Back in the day, I had high Olympic hopes myself, but unfortunately was sidelined by too many injuries and illnesses to be able to realize that dream.
