Social Media Recap: Former Patriot James Develin Runs Boston MarathonJay Biggerstaff - USA TODAY Sports

On Monday, the annual Boston Marathon, at last, made its return to the New England region following a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although traditionally scheduled for April, the 125th event took place on Monday and former Patriot and three-time Super Bowl champion James Develin was one of the thousands of participants, running as a member of the Joe Andruzzi Foundation team.

“It was a surreal experience,” Develin later told WBZ-TV’s Eric Fisher after finishing. “I didn’t know what to expect. This was my first experience at the marathon and it was absolutely awesome from Mile 1 to 26.2. It was a great time.”

According to WBZ, the 33-year-old Develin completed the course in 4:27:17.

At the conclusion of his run, Develin posted some photographs recapping his day over Instagram.

A few of Develin’s Patriots teammates tweeted out their support and fullback Jakob Johnson met up with him at the finish line in downtown Boston.

Congratulations to James on the amazing accomplishment!
