As today’s @bostonmarathon joins the previous editions of this iconic event into it’s rich history, the torrential rain and wind forced each runner to dig into the well of the human spirit from the get.
The following is told by our member, and (now) 4-Time Boston Marathon finisher, Elizabeth @coachcorkyruns!

First, thank you to everyone for the lovely DMs, comments, texts, and well-wishes for today’s @bostonmarathon. Special thanks to @coachmwangi @mmmarni @christopherkeelty the @queensdistance family, and especially @the8amazin8kevin who was my hero and helped me with my shoe at mile 20. Without a doubt, today was the toughest race of my life - and I’m not forgetting an Ultra in July where I clocked 76 miles in under 24 hours. The conditions caused muscles to verge on the edge of locking up, and so I compromised form and pace to attempt to keep everything happy. Luckily no actual cramping on the course. A bathroom break in mile 16 (🙈), almost throwing up a handful of times (gotta figure that one out), 2 pauses to handle a rock in my shoe, and I’ll take that 3:26:22. I was super emotional throughout the journey. I cried in the first mile. I laughed, I cheered, I cursed, and I was a ball of emotions when I made the right onto Hereford and the left onto Boylston. Despite the gnarly “real feel” of 22 degrees at the start, strong winds and at times downpours, Boston will always be my favorite. It’s the best damn marathon in the world. And it continues to test me and make me stronger each time I start the journey from Hopkinton. 💙🦄💛

Boston, there is only one! 🦄

Representing Queens, NY at another City is always a special occasion, especially at the site of the @bostonmarathon.

Congratulations to all the runners that took part today, it was wonderful seeing our fellow NYC Running Clubs and friends in action!

QDR at the BAA 5K this morning had a little bit of everything we are known for. We ambitiously supported one another with a mobile SCREAM STATION powered by Co-Founder Edwin @algorhythm19, and teammates (most whom are running the Boston Marathon) that stayed until the last runner of the event, enjoyed a well deserved Post-Race Brunch and of course, teammates of all walks of life and abilities giving it their all in gold for a thrill of a course that takes you right through the Boston Marathon Finish Line!

Tomorrow morning, most of our Marathoners arrive in town and we will be prepared to shift gears and get our lungs ready! Patriots Day in Boston has just about arrived, and we cannot wait!
