A 73-year-old retired registered nurse and widow from Gloucester, Mass., Carrie Parsi, who’s run the Boston Marathon 14 times and the Mount Washington Road Race 17, sets the standard for marathons. We love her approach to racing. “When we line up for the start, I look around for women with gray hair and varicose veins so that I know who I am competing with. I can still sometimes outrun the women in their 60s.”
