Mother Lode Runner In Boston Marathon
Motherlode residents might see a familiar face running in the 108th annual Boston Marathon today.
The 38-year-old Doreen Brown, a rural mail carrier for the Cedar Ridge area, has been training for the race since the middle of last year. She qualified for the race by running the 26.2 miles in three hours and 23 minutes.
It´s not the first time Brown has run competitively, though. She´s run in marathons in San Francisco, Sacramento, and Long Beach too.
The race – billed as the world´s oldest annual marathon – is being televised on ESPN-2.
