"I made it 26.2 miles...still smiling on the outside but legs and feet were hurting pretty good," Gaw said. "I decided to do the race a year ago, after attending a Red Sox game with my son on Patriots Day. I observed runners struggling to the finish line and I told him I was going to do it next year. I did not tell many people because after telling a few, they all said -- Are you crazy?"

As fit as Gaw is, he estimates that he outweighs two elite athletes put together. The men's champion this year is Deriba Merga, Ethiopia, 2:08:42; the women's winner is Salina Kosgei, Kenya, 2:32:16.

Congratulations, Bob. And always remember: It's the taking part.
