Marathon runners begin to pick up race bibs

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - Thousands will be running strong on Monday with their eye on the finish line, but Friday, the Hynes Convention Center was the place to be.

Some of the 36,000 registered runners showed up there to check in and pick-up their bibs for Monday’s race.

For one man it will be his 24th time running the 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to Boston.

“I want to enjoy the day. I want to enjoy the crowd. I want to give kids high fives not just focus on running and getting to finish, I want the moment. I want to enjoy everything about this Monday, so I’m going to approach it differently,” Mike Derby said.

Runners can pick up their bibs at the Hynes Convention Center through Sunday.
