Swampscott marathoner ran New York for a reason

SWAMPSCOTT — DJ Racette had one goal in mind when he traveled to the Big Apple this past weekend, and that was to finish the New York City Marathon. 

Last Sunday, Racette accomplished that goal, running the 26.2-mile race in three hours and 32 minutes; he finished in 275th place in an event that welcomed 33,000 participants this year. 

“The New York City Marathon is amazing," said Racette. "I've never seen it before. This was my first time there. The size of the crowd and the crowd support for 26 miles was just astonishing."
