Canadians showed up in the top five of many age categories at yesterday’s Boston marathon, indicating that the atrocious weather might actually have worked in their favour.
The Canadian contingent was only about 2,000-strong, so kudos to everyone.
Krista DuChene of Brantford, Ont. (2:44:20) – 1st (and 3rd overall)
Angela Swit of Toronto (3:00:47) – 5th
Teresa Novick of London, Ont. (3:23:29) –2nd
Elizabeth Waywell of Guelph, Ont. (3:20:18) – 1st
(Waywell set an age group course record at Vancouver’s First Half Half Marathon in in February of this year, with a time of 1:31:02.)
Lucie Rochon of Saint-Augustin-De-Desmaures, Que. (3:30:19) – 3rd
Patricia Dudar of Montreal (4:36:34) – 4th
Susan Magher of Laval, Que. (4:36:35) – 5th
Daniel Desharnais of Fossambault-Sur-Le-Lac, Que. (2:51:56) – 4th
Roger Turgeon of Quebec City (3:16:56) – 1st
Malcolm Pain of Bedford, N.S. (4:38:41) – 2nd
Peter Kwan of Edmonton (5:17:41) – 3rd
A recent article in the Halifax Herald described Pain’s pride at being the first 80-year-old Nova Scotian to run the Boston marathon. It was his ninth time in a row; previously he had been sidelined with a knee injury and didn’t run for two years. Pain has stood on the podium every year since 2015.
