Julie Alarcon, 50 of Windsor Vt. finished the Lake George Marathon in her best time ever. She credited her speed and endurance to focusing during the race on paying tribute to the runners and the family members who were killed or injured during the April 15 Boston Marathon bombing. Incidentally, Alarcon has lost 70 pounds since she started running several years ago.
