What a weekend of running we've got in store.

******
If you're in Boston join us at 7pm on Friday at Brato's Brewhouse + Kitchen before the women's World Record DMR attempt at the New Balance Track at 8:35pm (Free and open to the public). Brato's Brewhouse is a 4 minute walk from the track. First beer is on us for Supporting Club members.

Tonight, the squad of Sydney McLaughlin, Elle Purrier St. Pierre, Heather MacLean, and Roisin Willis will attempt to break the world record in the indoor DMR as part of the grand opening of The TRACK and New Balance in Boston. Across town, pros like Keira D'Amato, Emily Sisson, Weini Kelati, Geordie Beamish, and Edward Cheserek will line up for the B.A.A. 5K on Saturday morning.

There will also be a heck of a track meet at the USATF Golden Games at Mt. SAC, headlined by a Christian Coleman-Fred Kerley-Michael Norman-Rai Benjamin fatal four-way in the men's 200. Tune in to CNBC from 5-7 p.m. ET on Saturday to watch that one live.

And then on Monday, we've got the small matter of the Boston Marathon, which, led by stars like Geoffrey Kamworor, Peres Jepchirchir, Joyciline Jepkosgei, and Molly Seidel, features the greatest fields in the race's 126-year history.

We'll have boots-on-the-ground coverage for you from Boston all weekend, starting today with our Friday 15 Boston Marathon preview podcast. If you want to listen to the Friday 15 -- which we produce every Friday, marathon or not -- get access by signing up for the LetsRun.com Supporters Club here.

There's no better time to be a running fan, so enjoy the weekend everybody!
