As a birthday present – the woman’s daughter said she’d find out the name of that man.
The photo remains the one clue Barbara has in her marathon quest.
“I believe in fate and it was a nice kiss and he kissed me again and he yelled out for me to call him,” Barbara says.
Barbara is the runner in the photo. She was among the thousands of qualified runners who burst off the starting line fearless about what was ahead.
“I wanted it to be a great time, but not in terms of the clock but in terms of the experience,” she says.

“They dared me to kiss a good looking guy along the course. And that’s exactly what I did.
When she hit 50, Barbara started running. She had beat cancer and was recently divorced. Running was the start of something new. This was her first Boston Marathon.
“I ran the race with the thought in mind that I was going to just use it as an adventure and enjoy every opportunity that came my way.”
That’s exactly what she did with the kiss. Barbara hails from Memphis and often travels to Boston for business.
She’ll run at the chance to meet the mystery man, but understands if she was not the only one caught up in the feeling of Boston.
“If he is married I do not wish to cause him grief I hope his wife has a good sense of humor,” she says.
