Barbara Ann Kisiloski of Royal LePage Northstar Realty celebrates completing the 2018 Boston Marathon.

Barbara Ann Kisiloski of Royal LePage Northstar Realty in Surrey, B.C. participated in the 122nd running of the Boston Marathon recently in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. She raised $2,500, bringing Kisiloski’s Marathon for Shelter fundraising total to more than $8,500. The funds were donated to Sources-Community Resource Centres.

Kisiloski ran 26.2 miles (44 km) from the rural New England town of Hopkinton to the John Hancock Tower in Boston while enduring uncharacteristically frigid and wet conditions.

“We definitely had the most miserable weather in the history of the Boston Marathon, with chilling rains, torrential downpours and headwinds as strong as 45 mph,” says Kisiloski. “Conditions impacted the field considerably and about 3,000 registered runners failed to start to avoid injury. Thankfully, I was able to persevere and will wear my finishers’ jacket proudly!”

  1. Technical advice. A marathon is 42. 2 km. To be very precise 42.195. Been there done that. Otherwise Kudos to Ms. Kudoloski, I had a number of friends running the race (not for charity) and they all told me that it was one of the most miserable races (weather wise) they had ever run. Awesome achievement. Congratulations !
