    It’s been awhile since I logged on so I will just catch up on last week that I remember. Unfortunately I won’t be watching Boston this week, I’ll be sleeping, it’s almost bedtime for me. My brother is the one who got me into running. We’ve done a few races together but never run together, he’s faster than me. Not sure on the movie. Probably one of the earlier ones that I’ve never seen or watched in a long time.

    Also, @LSUlakes, can you add a race for me.

    Not sure. I would think you could do it on a computer. I have the app already for other sports so I just use that.

    Thanks, I figured something out :) If anyone else is having problems with NBC, I'm using www.fubo.tv. You can get free access for a week, you just have to remember to cancel before the week's over if you don't want the account.

    Solid Race!!!

    I may have a bootleg copy of this film. DD loved it and was mad when the little boy pushed the girl in the mud in her pretty dress. She got up from the couch to fuss the TV


    Welcome to the thread and good luck with training!

    @Chaitali This LINK is currently live and seemed to just work for me... Not sure it will continue once the men start..

    QOTD: Who has two thumbs and going to be very unproductive for the first half of the day today while watching the marathon...


    ATTQOTD: THIS GUY!


    All jokes aside, it's like super bowl Sunday for me!

    Back to the conversation abut running with family, my husband just mentioned yesterday that if we do Star Wars race weekend next year, he would do the 10k with me! So I'm thinking no to marathon weekend and instead maybe doing the Stars Wars race weekend for both of us.

    Catching up....

    Not watching Boston as we’re in Disneyland.

    I’m the only one in my household that runs. My younger brother in law runs but he’s in the Air Force and not local. But we do chat about it. I have some cousins who occasionally train for races. In fact I got one of them interested in WDW full for 2020...

    First Disney movie I’d watch would be Pete’s Dragon...1977 version of course. Because 1977 was an amazing year!

    Wow, the finish for the men was crazy, though it seems like Desisa gave up in the last few strides. It looked like it was going to be a photo finish for a bit there.

    What a amazing finish of the mens race and a great race ran by the women. Todays marathon did not disappoint!

    Definitely keeping track of Boston. Know a few people running. First year in a while I am not out spectating but I just did not want to stand in the rain again. Good luck to everyone who is running. At least it is warmer this year.

    I caught the final couple of miles of both the mens and the womens races. That men's finish was pretty amazing

    Can anyone comment on the progress of DISsers running today? I can look for Wendy from the US and see one finished, but I really have no idea on other IRL names.

    @croach is about 2 miles out from the finish. Course got the best of him a little today but still a decent time.

    @croach was at 35k
    @BikeFan was at 35k
    @Wendy98 finished

    Can't remember @jmasgat real name.

    crouch and bikefan are predicted to finish about 1 minute apart around 2:06 eastern.
