No, wait...All Hail Darin Gallagher!

OK, now we're cookin' with grease. Not only was there a Boston Marathon finisher from my podunk hometown of Wapato, but there was also a Boston Marathon finisher from my current podunk residence of Sedro Woolley. Who knew? So Darin Gallagher, of Sedro Woolley (town motto: if you don't have a "Get 'R Done!" bumper sticker, you must be a Commie Obama supporter), actually pounded out a 3:27:36, not half-bad for a recent addition to the Masters Division.
