Into week 3 now - so far so good but only still building up. Folksworth 15 this weekend will be a good test
Flights not booked but booked hotel last May! Using Marriott points to stay near Boston Common
3rd time in Boston for me. I'm not sure how you get to the start from Newton but the buses from Boston start at Boston Common and there are big queues. I guess the queues will be even bigger this year with the bigger field.
Hotels are not cheap over marathon weekend so having something in the bag is useful and if you can find something nearer the time then even better.
Last year, I went to Fenway Park to watch the baseball on the Saturday afternoon which was fun and cheap! There is a place where the club allows ticket holders to sell on any spares at face value and I picked up a $20 ticket easily. I guess it depends how well the team is playing as to how popular tickets are
