CAPE COD TIMES
Dave McGillivray, race director of the Boston Marathon and the New Balance Falmouth Road Race, has run across the United States, swam from Martha’s Vineyard to Falmouth, and done the Boston Marathon blindfolded.
THE BOSTON GLOBE
Amid your rhythmic footfalls, Falmouth Road Race landmarks come and go. The Nobska lighthouse. The flat miles along the Vineyard Sound. The loop around the inner harbor. You check your watch at each mile marker. Right on pace. As the beachside finish nears, the crowds grow larger and louder. You sprint beneath a giant American flag, cross the line 150 yards later, and find a bank of photographers clicking away. Then, with the satisfaction of a race well run, you step off your treadmill.
