You’ve done your run? Got your coffee? Okay. You’re good to go. This edition of The Sunday Read includes what’s on tap in Boston, and some not-so-naked news about showing off your buff.
To celebrate its 125th anniversary, the Boston Athletic Association has been publishing 30 moments in B.A.A. history on its Facebook page. They’re well worth a look. Check them out here: http://on.fb.me/u9mT1w, and on its website here: http://bit.ly/zpwwRZ
What’s on tap this year in Boston? Samuel Adams announced its Boston 26.2 brew in time for this year’s Patriot Day’s event. Just be sure to wait until after the race before you sample it. http://bit.ly/zsuS1M
