Maine natives are top finishers at 26th Maine MarathonAndrew Van Hoogenstyn wins the men's race and Tracy Guerrette wins the women's....“The time was right where I thought I could do,” said Van Hoogenstyn, who ran the second half faster than the first 13.1 miles, “but I knew I’d have to have a perfect day.”He smiled beneath a wreath of laurels.“We got a perfect day.”Indeed, there was barely a hint of a breeze when the race started at 7:45 under clear blue skies and a temperature of 44 degrees. Sunlight glistened off the water filling Back Cove as runners began their trek north along Route 1 and then Route 88 in Falmouth through Cumberland before looping back in Yarmouth. More than 700 made it all 26.2 miles. Another 1,700 turned around in Falmouth for the half marathon. There were also 148 marathon relay teams. ... rise-wins/
