Boston Marathon: Too Soon?

Boston, MA—As spectators excitedly gather to watch the 118th Boston Marathon, many of the runners can be heard grumbling about the much-anticipated event.

 “The marathon is no joking matter. It’s too soon,” said Joseph Anderson, a Boston native. “Seriously, the date crept up on me. I haven’t had enough time to practice and I’m not nearly in good enough shape to run this.”

 Many participants are complaining about people who do not take the marathon seriously enough.
