Tracy McGrady’s playoff career can be summed up in one word: disappointing.

He is notorious throughout the NBA for having never won a playoff series. For a player who is a seven-time All-Star and a two-time scoring champ, that stat is rather embarrassing.

McGrady’s Houston Rockets are one win away from advancing in the playoffs for the first time since joining the Rockets in 2004.

Runners take your mark, get set… at the crack of the gun, you’re off! 

To professional runners, the Boston Marathon is a race they look forward to. But to most of the thousands of runners who compete in this race, it is an accomplishment they can say they did.

On April 20, Patriots Day, the Boston Marathon took place on a beautiful Monday morning. Thousands of runners gathered together to run 26.2 miles. Living in the Boston area, I was able to go to the marathon and support all of the runners who ran the race.
