Boston Marathon 2010 Photos Posted

Boston Marathon Runners on my coach

Boston Marathon Runners on my coach

I’m back from Boston, and got a few photos posted from the trip. This was my sixth trip to the most famous of marathons, but I’ve yet to actually see the runners run. There is nowhere to park my motorcoach within walking distance on race day. But it’s still a fun trip, one I look forward to every year, especially as I’ve gotten to know my passengers on this trip.

I’ve posted a few photos from the trip here: http://www.bobbergey.com/p41009462. Although I don’t see the race itself (except on TV from my hotel room), I do shuttle the runners to the starting line in Hopkinton. That’s where many of these photos were taken, just before the race started. You’ll see the group of 30 runners I took this year (and in the photo above). The hotel we stay at is also very nice, photogenic even, and I have a couple of shots there that I took just for me — including my coach, of course.

Boston Marathon, Day 1

I’m in Boston, MA today. I left from our terminal with a group of runners (I decided not to run this year — or ever), and their families. First stop was at the Prudential Center in the heart of Boston, where I had a very filling dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. Good thing I don’t have to drive another seven hours! Runners registered at the Convention Center, and the rest shopped and ate. Now we’re off to the hotel for the night, with more race prep (after church) tomorrow. This is one of my favorite trips, this being the sixth year in a row I’ve driven for them. So I’ve gotten to know most of them on a first name basis. Fun trip!
