Southborough runners headed for Heartbreak Hill

It’s Patriot’s Day. That means, once again, a pack of Southborough runners are headed to Hopkinton. Fourteen residents (8 women and 5 men) are running in the 2018 Boston Marathon. Given current conditions and the forecast, a certain hill may be particularly heartbreaking today.

(May the wind be at their back and the rain minimal!)

Here’s the complete list of who’s registered for the challenge today. (For those raising funds, I again included information with links to their fundraising pages.)

Please join me in wishing them the best on their 26.2-mile trek.
