WEB EXCLUSIVE: Marathon Mamas

North Andover runner JULIE MOORE, 42, completed her first of 17 Boston Marathons in 1988. She has run a total of 35 marathon since that year, preparing differently for each one. Weight training, however, is always a staple in her training.

Lawrence resident CAROL BLANCHARD, 52, ran her first Boston Marathon at 40 years old in 1996. The 2008 race is her 10th Boston Marathon, as well as her 21st completed marathon. She's perfected her training schedule over the years, and now routinely runs with a pal instead of alone.
Newburyport resident NANCY McCARTHY, 61, ran her first Boston Marathon at 36 year old in 1983. The 2008 Boston Marathon marks the 26th marathon she's completed in the past 26 years, nine of which were on the Boston course. The fitness instructor now helps others train for marathons, always reminding them about the importance of stretching.
