HOPKINTON (CBS) -If you think the spring potholes are brutal on your tires, imagine what they’re like for marathon runners. “If you run on the right side when you’re going into the city, for example, and you’re not paying attention, you’re drifting away when you run, and you hit one of these potholes and you just fall forward,” says runner Bill Mcman, who’s finished 5 marathons.
That’s why crews are scrambling to fill cracks and potholes along a 26.2 mile stretch of roadway.
They have until Monday before thousands of competitive runners run the route from Hopkinton to Boston.
