The heart and soul of the Boston Marathon are the people who run, cheer and volunteer. Race director Dave McGillivray has run Boston 46 times. But this year is different. It’s his first marathon after major surgery. And he’s dedicating it to a special five year-old. Jack Middlemiss is a non-stop inspiration for McGillivray.
