The Boston Marathon brings all sorts of people from around the world to the Hub—not least of which, some elite signmakers. As it turns out, a well-placed pun does much to make you forget about your aching calves or chafing nipples on the final stretch of a 26.2-mile slog. And so, these masters of posterboard deserve a salute.
Here’s a dozen of our favorite signs from along the marathon route.
When you don’t think you can go on, just remember:

It helps having friends in high places.
