We asked users to send us photos from last year's Boston Marathon, and here are the best of the best. Last year's Boston Marathon was Nancy's 11th but held special meaning. Her sister Suzann had lost her life in July of 2002 and had never seen Nancy run a road race. The 2003 marathon was on 4/21, what would have been Suzann's 41st birthday. It was Nancy's best marathon and her last. She felt great throughout and knew she could not top her finish again.
