The satisfaction you feel when you have endured 26.2 miles to the finish line of a marathon is hard to describe but certainly beyond just delight or contentment. This year I had the honor of starting, grinding through and completing the 120th Boston Marathon. There’s a lot to say about this year's race, but the theme of the race speaks for itself - “Boston Strong”. No matter what tragedies and challenges have happened to the people of the great city of Boston, we keep our heads held high and feet hitting the ground. The marathon is a tradition that keeps going and keeps growing.
The Boston Marathon had its challenges and tragedies. In the wake of the upcoming race, city residents continue to beam with pride and support a great event. Supporting the marathon not only helps the city of Boston, but the families and friends of those we lost in 2013.
As the tribute banner rises and race day approaches, an outpouring of love for the great city of Boston and patriotism among those who call this great city home, continues to increase. We’ve learned from the past not to take our freedoms for granted and to run with pride.
New York, NY Last month, alumni, students, parents and staff of Staten Island's St. Christopher's School gathered at an Alumni Reunion Benefit to honor several individuals who played key roles in rebuilding the school and supporting the community in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
I recently ran the mountainous Marathon Park Prep 13.1 mile race in Ashland, MA, a primer for the 2016 Boston Marathon. I take great pride in lacing up my shoes, challenging myself while I often raise funds for charity. As I reflect on the marathon, I think about how running is a lot like business. Like marathon training, it takes time, discipline and dedication to grow a successful enterprise. Each day and transaction is different, just like a race or a trail, there could be things along the way that could challenge your performance.
“The sale of the Millennium Tower Boston’s grand penthouse is a vote for the “new Boston” and an endorsement of Millennium Partners, according to Bates.”
That’s David Bates, author of the Bates Real Estate Report commenting on the recent sale of the penthouse in the Millennium Tower. With an asking price of $37.5 million, any sum close to that would make it the most expensive condominium in Boston’s history. The Millennium Tower is certainly not shy, it’s development has been featured in the Boston Business Journal, Banker & Tradesman, the Boston Herald and Boston Globe. Expected to live up to its hype, the Millennium Tower is set to include a two-level club with a lifestyle program for its residents and a restaurant with celebrity chef Michael Mina at the helm.
