Boston Marathon, April 16, 2017

Regina sent only six athletes to the big race, but they were some of the fastest Regina runners to run Boston over the years. The weather was hot, hot, hot! The start was reported to be 65 degrees F, in full sun - very tough weather for Regina runners who prepared in -10 and -20 weather. Be that as it may, our runners did splendidly. These are great times even in cool weather! I must give a special shout out to MM's own Ashley Desjardins, who qualified last year with three PRs in a row. After running her BQ in the Edmonton marathon last August, Ashley had about 30 minutes before the start of the 5 km race, where she paced her mom in her mom's first race! Congrats to Ashley and all the other Regina runners.
