Newton Centre runner Orlee Berlove, who was running for the Mass General Hospital for Children, sent us this email about her run on Monday:
The race, as I am sure you heard from others, was BRUTAL. I don't like running in 90 degree weather at all. However, I had a lot of people cheering for me along the way so that was a big boost.
The best part was seeing my husband, kids and friends. I had one friend at mile 8.5 with a big sign bearing my name. I also had my husband, kids and other friends at mile 19.5 My 10-year old ran for part of the race with me as did my husband, who ran me to the finish line.
Thankfully, I did not need any medical treatment along the way. I made sure to drink at every water stop along the route and get ice where it was available. I did however take in a seeming endless supply of potato chips after the race was over. Is there such thing as a potato chip drip into the veins? I think I had one of those.
Newton Runner Kate Stanton, who crossed the finish line around 4:30 p.m., sent Newton Patch this update via email:
"It was sooooo hot! I started to hurt at mile 8 but then got my act together with the help of pantyhose filled with ice and made it to the finish. I now can't walk well, but it was worth it. I will definitely do Boston again!"
