Marie “Grandma” Killeen finished Sunday’s 10-miler after announcing that this is her farewell appearance at the race. She will be concentrating on shorter race distances in the future. Marie received a warm reception along with the bouquet of sunflowers at the awards ceremony. Marie “Grandma” Killeen is one of the most durable runners Rockland County has ever seen. Her longevity is an inspiration to her fellow Rockland Road Runners club members and a model to emulate for everyone seeking a fit and healthy lifestyle.
Well done, Marie!
