Kayla Buck prepares for her first Boston Marathon

Kayla Buck of Mapleton will be running in her first Boston Marathon on Monday. Buck qualified for Boston with her finish at the Maine Marathon last year.
Kayla Buck:" My first Boston getting up to it was a difficult challenge. I didn't think I was actually going to qualify for the race. When I got to the finish line and saw i was 5 minutes ahead I almost fainted. Just really excited and anxious for the race to come."

A ‘family thing’
From marathons to high school, Ashby family ready for all challenges


...here is a time-worn cliche that characterizes father-son relationships as “like father, like son.”

But in the case of the Ashby family, this maxim might better be stated “like father, like daughters.”

It has been said that the family that plays together stays together, and the game this family plays is running. Local well-known marathoner, Robert Ashby, and his two daughters are examples of a passion for a sport that has bred family unity and inspiration. This is about a devotion to a sport which has kept this family close together.

Bob’s fervency for distance running has inherently rubbed off on his two daughters, Jessica and Micaela, and therein has become a story of encouragement and motivation.

Central Maine runners of all backgrounds descend on Boston for Marathon Monday
Race veterans and newcomers dot the field in 121st edition of running tradition

There’s no telling who will win the Boston Marathon on Monday, but you can feel confident about one result. Ward and Wade Boudreau will have the same times through the different splits. Through the 5K, 10K and 15K checkpoints. At the halfway mark. And, most likely, when they cross the finish line in Boston’s Copley Square.

It’s not a coincidence. The Boudreaus are identical twins, and they make it a point for their times to be the same.

“We’ve trained all year together, and we definitely help to temper each other,” said Wade, a Gardiner resident like his brother. “Sometimes in a race, somebody will feel great in a moment, and a couple of moments later you might not feel so great. So we help to average it out a little bit.

Seminal moment at 1967 Boston Marathon continues to inspire women
Kathrine Switzer, the first woman to officially finish the race 50 years ago, prepares to run again.

...“What was a dramatic incident 50 years ago became instead a defining moment for me and women runners,” Switzer said in announcing her return to Boston. “The result is nothing less than a global social revolution; there are now more women runners in the United States than men (females accounted for 57 percent of those who completed U.S. running events in 2015, according to data from Running USA).

“These women are both fearless and compassionate, wanting to help other women around the world achieve their goals. Because of this team’s great fundraising, 261 Fearless will be able to spread our message far and wide.”

Sanford father and son run Boston Marathon together

BOSTON (WGME) - Brian and Steven Schneider bonded over a very unique event Monday.

This is the first time that Brian or Steven Schneider have ran in the Boston Marathon.

Marathons are old hat for Brian, but for his old man, it’s only his second marathon ever.
