It's the weekend of the really lean people
I work in the Back Bay/Prudential area of Boston and it's fun this time each year to see the really lean people show up. Marathoners tend not to be overly tall, and they aren't built up muscular, but they are very lean.
The year they had the 100th running many folks came in early. I spent the week wondering why these crowds of tourists in Copley Place were all wearing relaxed fit jeans and then realized those were normal jeans and these were thinner than usual people.
It's fun to play spot the marathoner in the family of four. Usually if they've brought the kids, it's the dad.
