   She stops all training two weeks before a marathon to let the body heal.

   Why would someone in their late 40s want to run the Boston Marathon
   for the first time?

   “The experience for one,” LeBoeuf said.

   “Just running with over 70,000 people in the premiere running event, I
   consider myself lucky to be among them. It sold out in eight hours. It’s
   difficult to qualify so I feel fortunate to even go.”

   While it takes substantial training and a high level of commitment,
   LeBoeuf stresses that she thinks almost anyone in could run a marathon
   with the right preparation.

   A 10 kilometre or half marathon is a good place to start.

   “You have to put your heart in it or you’ll never do it,” LeBoeuf said. “I
   played soccer when I was younger but I didn’t do anything athletic for
   years until I took up running. So it definitely is something a normal
   person can do.”
