Boston Marathon: to run or not to run was never a question

My marathon nap training program.
It was the question on Mom's mind all weekend, and after much to-ing and fro-ing (well, after Dad said it was absolutely not a good idea) she decided to defer her entry into the 116th Boston Marathon until next year.
About 400 other runners did, too, plus whomever just decided not to pick up their race number. It was a tough one: after all that training, all those missed walks for me and lack of attention, to not touch one's toe to either the start or finish?
Me, it was simple: I stayed home, where I stayed hydrated, rested, and air-conditioned. Nice.
