Our office is located on the Boston Marathon route almost exactly at the halfway point. Like seeing the glass half empty or half full, reaching the midpoint of a marathon triggers various feelings of pessimism or optimism. Having run the marathon a handful of times, I remember finding myself on each end of that continuum.
Now, watching it is always a little emotional because I can relate to the sacrifices the runners make as they prepare for the event. As difficult as the race itself may be, it is the reward that comes on the tail of a winter spent working really, really hard.
Best of luck to everybody who is running this year. We will be cheering for you.
