Friday, April 18


Passover, Good Friday, Easter, and Patriot's Day. It's a big weekend here in Massachusetts. Patriot's Day weekend has always been a big one at Wellesley, as we are conveniently located at the half-way mark of the Boston Marathon. The students line up along the marathon route and scream as loud as they can for as long as they can. It's one of my favorite Wellesley traditions. I was hoarse for a week after my first marathon here. The crowd gets particularly enthusiastic for anyone with a Wellesley connection, like this dad, who's running the race in his daughter's senior year at Wellesley. And, as any runner will tell you, Wellesley is the high point of the whole thing.
