BOSTON, Mass. – Colville tribal member Lorena Boyd crossed off a bucket list, running in the 2019 Boston Marathon, joining her daughter, Lisa Heneghen, and over 30,000 others on the fabled run from Hopkington, through several Boston boroughs, past Fenway Park to downtown Boston.
Swearing she was content with running half-marathons – running six to eight each year -- Boyd was inspired by her daughter’s qualifying and running the 2018 Boston Marathon.
To run in the Boston Marathon, you have to qualify.
Boyd, 60, qualified for the 2019 Marathon by running the Tucson Marathon in November, 2017 in 4:06.
While running somewhat slower in Boston, Boyd exclaimed that running Boston was not about time, but running with her daughter and experiencing the 26 mile-long cheering throng, often as loud as a Seahawks play-off game.
