Joey McIntyre shares his Marathon experience


Joey McIntyre has blogged about his first Boston Marathon, and it’s clear the New Kid of the Block is going to remember the experience for all the right reasons: “Nothing can change that beautiful New England countryside. Nothing can wipe away the moment I had with that Joey girl holding that well-preserved New Kids poster from ’89. Nothing can stop the ‘little person’ walking up heart break hill or the double amputee walking down it on prosthetic blades. Nothing can take away that kiss I had with my mother. . . . No one can take away the signs all along the course for every teacher and aunt and BFF and son and uncle that was running. Nothing can take away what happened 11 minutes after I ran a 3:57 Boston Marathon. And nothing will ever take away the power and resolve and fearlessness of the great city of Boston. We will get through this. It will take time. But we will get through this. See ya next year.”
