BOSTON MASSACHUSETTS (WGME) – There were plenty of Mainers at the Boston Marathon.
Each year the Boston Marathon attracts thousands of runners fans and volunteers from all over!
Volunteer Kristin Mattera said “It’s the best day in Boston, the vibe of the city, the energy, it’s just a fun day everyone is super nice and helpful. I am a runner too, I started this before I was a runner and I love every day I’m flying back to Colorado to do this that’s why i love it so much!”
With over 200 Mainers running in today’s Boston Marathon, plenty of Maine fans made the trek south to root them on.
Peter Panagio from Poerland said “I know that this is the biggest day of the year for them and just all of the support. That’s the best part of the day just seeing people accomplish their goals and just being with friends it’s a lot of fun.”
And that includes Caitlin and Connor Rooney of Wells who love the marathon so much. When asked if they think they will run someday, one said, yes, and they other stated probably.
