Boston Marathon Runner

This is your chance to be a marathon runner without having to worry about the whole running 26.2 miles thing. Get you running gear out, make a tag with a number, and find a trophy to carry around with you all night while you pretend you’ve gone all the way from Hopkinton to Boylston Street. If you really want to look like you’ve just finished, use aluminum foil to make one those thermal blankets from the finish line. Extra points if you have a friend who actually ran it and you can borrow their official jacket.

You will need: Marathon jacket, running sneakers, trophy or medal
