Exactly. I have a friend from Chile who ran the race in 1978 and has a photo of himself crossing the finish line (time clock appears in the upper corner) prominently displayed in his office. He considers it one of the most memorable moments of his life.

Having your picture taken at the finish line is common practice at all major races, and particularly marathons. I have mine from several I ran. I ran boston as a back of the packer because I couldn't qualify, so you don't get your picture taken at the finish, but I did something better. My 2nd time I brought a disposable camera with me and took pictures all the way into boston. Including 3 or 4 on Boyleston street.
Give me 3 minutes with Kerry and I'll be able to tell you if he ever ran it. There are little things like what is on the left hand side when you cross 128? When you turn onto commonwealth to start the hills, what is on the corner. How do you know there are no more hills ahead. etc etc...
