Boston Marathon: Many Wellesley angles

Hopkinton and Ashland can fuss about where the Boston Marathon began or begins, but there’s no arguing the fact that Wellesley is smack in the middle of the 26.2-mile course. We own from about mile 12 to 16, traversing Rte. 135 at the start and crossing over to Rte. 16 for the rest (this zippy […]
