By 2000, there were 40 in New York alone.  (Being Part Of History Quotes) Boston is the cream of the crop of the marathon world. It has such history that you feel such honor just being a part of it. All the other races have pacers to get you to a Boston qualifying time  (Being Part Of History Quotes) Doing ‘Prometheus’ was what you imagine being an actor is like when you’re five. In a spacesuit, on another planet, getting killed by an alien.
