#307: Boston Marathon 2018

Sarah and co-host Tish Hamilton, both veterans of the venerable Boston Marathon (SBS = 2x; Tish = an astounding 13!), aren’t running the race on Monday, April 16, but their four guests will be part of the action! First up is Jesse Blondin, who’ll be running the route from Hopkinton to Boston for her second time. Marvel as she describes doing the majority of her workouts are runs to and from her Ottawa office! She shares all the logistics involved, plus she talks about the importance of yoga to her running. Laugh along with Sarah as Jesse reveals what a “pre-shower” is. Next is Suzanne Adams, who’s run the Boston Marathon twice, but this year she’s volunteering instead of running—as well as helping coordinate a team of charity runners. On this, the five-year anniversary of the bombings, Suzanne and Tish both open up about their experiences from those horrific events. A longtime volunteer, Suzanne shares spectator tips. The next guest is Andrea Hennigan: This year’s Boston will be her seventh marathon, but the first she’s run as part of a fundraising team. Hear how she overcame the intimidation factor to sign up as a charity runner—and how homemade keyfobs entered into the equation. In addition to revealing how the team aspect of training for a cause takes the connection to a deeper level, Andrea details her creative fundraising efforts. The trio talks about the logistical challenges of a later-start marathon like Boston. Last but certainly not least is Kerry Cosneau, who’s running her first Boston Marathon after six attempts to qualify. Hear how this BAMR discovered her inner speed demon after age 40. She tells how the treadmill honed her speed and a pace group helped her reach her BQ time—a 16-minute PR! Join Sarah and Kerry on a quick side trip to the Paris Marathon. Kerry admits she’ll be doing a lot of “soaking it in” this weekend.
