Re "Great run by locals in Boston" (Marcos Breton, April 23): Marcos Breton's column was much appreciated, as it profiled several amazing local runners who excelled in the Boston Marathon Monday. As pointed out, our community is one of the top running areas of the country; lots of us even in our 60's and 70's are still getting "personal bests", even doing ultra-marathons. We have many running clubs in and around town, many great coaches and stores that specialize in running, and races that draw from all over the world). The numbers of local folks starting- then staying in- running grow and grow. Yet the running coverage in the Sports section is almost nil. How about more consistent, in-depth coverage of running events and runners in the Sports section? Marcos Breton knows the community well.
