Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Diane Roy took 1 h 43 min 40 sec to fin­ish the Bos­ton Marathon, com­ing in sixth in the women’s wheel­chair cat­e­gory, on Mon­day. “I didn’t ex­pect such a fast time. I just came back from two months of train­ing in Florida so I was in good shape. I’m sat­is­fied with my fin­ish,” she com­mented. “The first part of the course went well and I was fast. I lost time in the climbs, but I kept a good aver­age,” said the 43 year-old ath­lete from Hat­ley who was com­pet­ing in her third marathon in three weeks. In Paris her time was 1 hr 58 min­utes, and in Lon­don it was 1 hr 54 min 54 sec. “With each marathon I was able to im­prove my time,” she added.
