Friday Haikus: Boston Marathon Edition

Better late than never I always say. With that old adage in mind, I present this week's running haikus. They follow the Boston marathon course from start to finish just as I plan to do on Monday. Good luck to everyone else running and safe travels to those making their way to the Hub over the next couple of days.

Long lines for bathrooms,
To the corrals, Hopkinton,
It all starts here 

Rural to commerce,
Original starting line,
Entering Ashland

Tracks cross the pavement,
10k hits the train depot,
You're in Framingham

Charming small town feel
Historic Natick Center
Last chance for liquor

Signs saying "Kiss Me"
Degree pre-rec, co-eds scream 
Running through Wellesley

Up along Comm Ave
Heartbreak hill, Boston College
Newton at its best

First sight of the Pru
Downhill through Coolidge Corner
Brookline fans scream "Go!"

Right on Hereford,
Left on Boylston, home stretch
Finish line--Boston
