"It’s the thing.”

That is what Sara Mae Berman answered when asked why she wanted to run the Boston Marathon; that, and encouragement from her husband, Larry, who told her she could be a pioneer.

“That’s what motivated me,” said Berman.

But that’s not all I learned during Berman’s visit to Hopkinton on March 20. I also learned where Sara Mae met her husband, the year she was married, where she went to school and when she began to run.
