Coast runners qualify for Boston Marathon
Each year, runners across the world train for months at a time in hopes to participate in the famous Boston Marathon.
Thirty people from the state of Mississippi qualified for next year’s race, eight of those people are from the Coast.
News 25 caught up with Gulfport Athlete Dawn Gregory after the qualifying list was released over the weekend. This will be Gregory’s third time running in the Boston Marathon. She tells News 25 her mindset will be completely different this time around. “In 2017, I did it and I had a goal and I wanted to do it really well and I met that goal. This time, I just want to have fun. I want to enjoy it and do it well enough to qualify for 2019 to go back again.”
The 122nd running of the Boston Marathon is on Monday, April 16th.
