That is just the race itself, the Boston Marathon is a holiday for so many New England families. Families that go to the marathon because their parents brought them when they were kids and they want to have their children experience the marathon. For the people of New England the Boston Marathon is the Super Bowl!!
This Monday as the gun sounds to signify the start of the 121st Boston Marathon three members of Team Novo Nordisk will be running the worlds greatest marathon. Benny Madrigal, Casey Schwenk, and Stephen England will be the three members running the 26.2 mile course inspiring people living with diabetes all over the world. On Sunday Team Novo Nordisk published an article in which they interviewed each of the four runners. (Click here to read the article)
All four runners are an inspiration to myself and so many like me that know what it takes to run a marathon with diabetes. Best of luck Benny, Casey and Stephen!!! We are all rooting for you!!
