Marathon Snapshot: Tricia Banks

Name: Tricia Banks

Age: 24

Hometown: Beverly

Number of marathons: Two

Times run Boston: Twice

Why is it important for you to run this year?: “Last year the Boston Marathon was my first attempt at completing a marathon. I was right there ready to make the turn on Hereford when I was stopped due to the tragic events. This year, I will cross that finish line and rejoice with the city of Boston that we are back and we are stronger than ever. I am running for those who can’t.”

A perfect race day for you would be: “One without fear, a day of innocence, where the heart of the city is filled with spectators cheering and motivating thousands of runners to complete a daunting but historical and beautiful 26.2 mile race.”
