Congrats to all the finishers. Godiva had a good showing with the mens masters team taking 6th place.
The announcers of the race said some interesting things. I remember two things in particular.

- The runners are slower at the start in Hopkington because it is a higher elevation and the "air is thinner up there"
Speaking of mountains, I would also like to congratulate Aqua Josh for his 3:43 and 1st in his age group at the Blue Ridge Marathon.
To put his achievement in perspective, I will leave you with a profile comparison of Blue Ridge and Boston:
