During her maiden marathon run last spring, Seton-Harris said her expectations were low.
To show support, Seton-Harris started training with Sousa to keep her friend company, though she never imagined she’d take on Heartbreak Hill herself.
During last year’s Boston Marathon, she had just crossed the 21-mile marker when the bombs went off at the finish line.
“That’s when the Boston Police came through on motorcycles and the race was suddenly over,” she said. “It was organized chaos.”
“The students in the marching band know that excellence takes time and practice,” McNally said. “There are many miles to log to get to finish.”
Both her children plan on waiting for her near the end of the course, with Jake playing his trumpet and Sarah playing her baritone saxophone.
“When I first started running, a mile was a long run,” she said. “And that’s exactly what our kids are going through in the marching band. They’re out there in all kinds of weather working towards a goal. And it’s totally worth it in the end.”
