Constantino and Lux, a pair of triathletes as well as good friends, those numbers they’re hoping begin with a two. In other words, a sub three-hour effort.

Theroux eyeing strong effort at Boston Marathon

April 16, 2011

LINCOLN – Mike Theroux doesn’t have to go too far back in his memory bank to recall the first time he went for a run.
That’s because it occurred just six years ago for the 47-year-old Lincoln resident.
“I ran from my house to Lincoln High School and back,” he said. “It was about a three-mile run. At the time I was happy I was actually doing it, but it was amazing how much that run took out of me.”
Theroux will be running three miles again tomorrow. Only this time, he’ll still have 23 more before he reaches his final destination.
