More than 36,000 will race in the Boston Marathon, which begins Monday morning. The Associated Press’ Boston bureau chief, Bill Kole, will be running and tweeting each mile. The AP also has a live blog of the marathon. Here are some other journalists who are running. Tweet me @kristenhare or email me @firstname.lastname@example.org, if you know of more.
Happy Easter, marathoners! If jelly beans aren’t carbs, I’m screwed. #26Tweets2Boston

Noah Pransky, a reporter for WTSP 10 in Tampa, Fla.:
5 yrs ago, after my first #BostonMarathon, I said I’d never run another. Then, 1 yr ago, I changed my mind. See you in the AM.

Google’s Matt Cutts is running, too. Cutts is an engineer, but he has written advice to people starting in the field, once tried going without news for a month and used to have a foundation that donated to press organizations, including Poynter.
