Local Woman Prepares To Run Boston Again [Interview]

Subscribe to WBSM-AM/AM 1420 on

Terese Frenette is a member of the Greater New Bedford Track Club who is training to run the Boston Marathon again. This will be the seventh time she has run Boston and was there last year when the Marathon bombing happened. She joined us this morning to talk about the experience.

She had just finished the race last year and was headed down what they call “the chute” which is where the runners go to get their medals, blankets and water. She was just getting her water when the first bomb went off and, along with other runners thought it might have been kids just shooting off fireworks in a trash can, but when the second explosion went off and they saw all the smoke they knew this was a serious situation. She said it was a very crazy scene that day but credits the track club  president  Dawn Nunes with getting everyone organized and home safely.

When we asked Terese how she felt as she prepares for this year’s race, she thinks it will be exciting, but admits to some anxiety and said she might be a little nervous running down Boylston St.

Watch the entire interview above from the Pete and Neal Show this morning.
