Coronado and San Diego have their share of 10K's and marathons, but the Boston Marathon, one of the grand daddies of running, takes place Monday, and the community will be represented by 10 runners. 

They are:

Margaret Everett,  43 (4:42:23)

Arden Gillberg, 51 (4:23:59)

Bill Haffey, 65 (4:07:00)

Shelby Hartmann,  38 (4:20:11)

Thomas Hartmann, 52 (4:21:36)

Nicola McMahon, 55 (no record)

Stanley Salinda, 51 (3:48:19)

Kara Smith, 31 (5:30:53)

Nancy Swanson, 50 (no record)

Scott Tetzlaff, 41 (no record)

The group will be among 27,000 entrants in the 116th edition of the race, which kicks off at 7 a.m. Pacific time. Runners have to be at the top of their games to get in.

And think good thoughts for your neighbors. It's supposed to be unseasonably warm, with highs in the mid-to-upper 80s in Boston, enough that organizers have taken precautions, even warning some runners to sit the race out. Reuters reports it will be the hottest Boston Marathon in three decades.
