2016 SDTC Boston Marathon

2016 BOSTON MARATHON



On Patriot’s Day, April 18th, the SDTC’s Boston Group of 46 runners took off with the starting gun in the 120th version of the famed Boston Marathon, this year celebrating “50 Years of Women at Boston”. It was in 1966 that San Diego’s own Roberta Gibb quietly slipped into the race and became the first woman to complete the world’s oldest continually run road race..
 
As is often the case with the Boston Marathon, the most difficult obstacle this year was not the Newton hills but the weather. Unanticipated heat at the start in Hopkinton had runners waiting for hours in the hot sun and pouring water over their heads before the gun went off. By the 10 mile mark, the low humidity had salty racing singlets pasted to bodies but the thought of cooling ocean breezes ahead gave hope of relief. It wasn’t to be however as those on-shore winds and increasing humidity then reversed the effects and caused chills and cramps when none had ever been experienced previously.  Paces slowed, water stations became crowded and 8.3% of all race participants (2,490) made visits to the medical tents, including some of our SDTC runners. Even the winning, elite runner’s times were the second worst in the last twenty five years.
 
In spite of the conditions, the Bostonians still managed to persevere and if maybe not reaching their intended goals, they came close enough to call it a “PR effort”.
