A nurse in Massachusetts was supposed to take part in her first Boston Marathon. But due to the Covid-19 outbreak, like all public events, the marathon too got postponed.

Determined to not let the pandemic deter her plan, Lindsey Devers set out to run her own marathon and hoped to spell out the inspirational message for her city, ‘Boston Strong’ along the way.

However, after running 26.2 miles through a custom route that would spell out ‘BOSTON STRONG’, Dever realised that she hilariously omitted the very important letter ‘N’ and her cheer for her city now reads “Boston Strog”

Take a look here:

Taking to Instagram, the nurse working at Massachusetts General Hospital shared the post about her experience along with a picture of her marathon trail.

Captioning it ‘Solo Boston Marathon Covid Edition’, Dever said that she noticed the spelling error when it was too late to start over.

Despite the spelling error, Denver found heaps of praise on social media for her attempt. Take a look at some of the comments here:

Since being posted, Dever’s post has garnered around 400 likes. Recently, an Austrian pilot traced out a flight path in the sky to remind people to stay at home and practice social distancing during the time of the pandemic.
