Boston's Run to Remember

If you live in the Boston area and been training for Boston 06, there's a great half-marathon you should add to your training plan.

It's Boston's Run to Remember presented by New Balance. The race will be held Sunday, March 12 and starts at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston. You'll run through the streets of Boston and see some of the most famous landmarks in the city.

Boston's Run to Remember honors law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty and provides funds to the Boston's Police Foundation's Kids at Risk Programs.

Adding a race or two to your training is a great way to gauge improvements you've made in your workouts. It also simulates a race day environment. Sure, nothing is like standing in the corrals waiting for the start of the Boston Marathon. But if you tend to be jumpy before the starting gun goes off, running a race like this one will help settle your nerves. And maybe you can wear the cool running apparel you plan to use on marathon day.
