Bristol Man Wheeled Through the Boston Marathon Backward


Like many Boston Marathon runners, Harry McKinstry, 53, took the downhills a bit faster than he’d planned. In fact, though his typical pace is around 8:30 or 9-minute miles, he was clocking sub-7 paces at some points.

That’s when Michelle Desmarais, his longtime friend and guide, told him to stop waving and high-fiving and put his hand back on the brake.
