Max is from Boston. His parents have run the Boston Marathon. And Max is running the race this year for the first time because he’s “been going since he was born and it’s always been a big part of [his] life.” It’s a classic scenario for those from Beantown, but that’s only part of the story. Max’s parents haven’t just ‘run’ the Marathon. His dad actually runs it.
