On Monday, just a week before the 118th running of the Boston Marathon, and a day from the one-year remembrance of 2013's tragic events, crews installed the finish line.

The 26.2-mile mark stretches across Boylston Street, just outside the Boston Public Library (between Exeter and Dartmouth streets, in downtown Boston).

Earlier this week, the finish line on Boylston St. was the site of a Sports Illustrated "Boston Strong" photo shoot, with the picture to appear on the cover of the magazine that hits newsstands on Wednesday. SI invited all Bostonians to be a part of the shoot, which took place Saturday morning.
