Boston Marathon Countdown: Remembering 2009

I'm totally nostalgic at heart and have been known to sometimes live in the past, rather than the present. Blame it partially on my mom--she's taken so many pictures over the years to fill plenty of albums at home--and partially on my knack for history. So don't be surprised that I'm looking back on the 113th Boston Marathon before looking ahead to the 114th on Monday, April 19. Check out these pictures from last year's race--we have Flickr to thank for these memories (and maybe my random browsing? I still wish I had been there) as well as the photographers who allowed download access to their accounts.
