Thanks to the many hardy runners who showed up on a raw rainy morning to support the Greater Newburyport Supports Boston Strong 2.62 Mile Charity Run. The mantra for this year’s run was “we raised $15,000 last year…let’s do it again”. Well, we did it again! And then some! Don’t have a final number yet, we need a couple of invoices to show up, but it’s safe to say that this year’s donation to One Fund Boston will easily surpass last year’s $15,000 donation.

For the competitive runners, Bradford’s Pat Fullerton was the first to cross the finish line in 15:10, with Newburyport’s Cameron Leonard finishing second. Complete “results” have been posted on Coolrunning.com:

Professional Race Photographer, Liz Cardoso, was on hand yesterday, donating her services and braving the cold and rain to capture all of you doing the same. Event photos have been posted on Facebook. Tag away:

Lastly, whether you’re running next Monday’s 118th Boston Marathon, volunteering, spectating or watching it from the comfort of your home, enjoy the day and enjoy being a part of it…and never ever forget 4-15-13.
