The road to victory for Gayle Barron

My favorite memory of Boston was winning the race in 1978 after having already run 4 marathons from September, 1977 (NIKE Marathon), NY City Marathon in late October, Honolulu in early December 1977 and then capping the 4th marathon with the Avon Women's International Marathon in Atlanta in March of 1978.

I entered Boston at the last minute because I was afraid that I would be too tired to run it. My legs felt great because I took off 3 weeks prior to the marathon in March and that rest helped me have the best race of my life...winning the Boston marathon.
