BOSTON (CBS) — At the WBZ Water Cooler: Prime 5K season is winding down here a bit, but really the season never ends, so we decided to take in a race.

We went to a Boston 5K along the Charles River and talked with a couple runners.

Dave from Quincy finished with one of the better times and says he tried to come out strong and “take the lead from the beginning.”

Barrett from Charlestown says he was trying to avoid “falling in the water around the 4K mark.”
