Where would you rather have been on the morning of April 16? On the Boston Marathon course, or in a dentist’s chair? I was in the latter, and I consider myself lucky! But I got back from the dentist in time to watch the second half of the race unfold on my TV. I saw elite athletes running in raincoats, many of them dropping out. And I saw Des Linden taking charge in the women’s race somewhere on Heartbreak Hill, becoming the first American woman to win Boston in over thirty years.
