9 Days to Boston Marathon: Flickr Pics from the Crowd

In writing the various posts related to the Boston Marathon, I've been amazed at the number of photos referencing this famous marathon. Many are from the past two years, but for this runner who stopped running with a camera after her marathon (too many jiggly photos I couldn't decipher) I was loving the memories and moments I couldn't see from my back-of-the-pack spot on the course.

So if you're into browsing through photos, here are a few favorites that I uncovered on Flickr. And thanks to all of those who use the service and have their pictures available to download, this entry couldn't be done without them.
