There were some great results in Boston with several members re-qualifying for Boston in Boston - additionally, there were some struggles with the warmer weather and challenges of the course.  - All in all - being part of the Boston Marathon Tradition carries the day!  Nice work to all!  - They had quite a crew at Cheers prior to the event!
