Jeff Matos used to be addicted to cigarettes. He's traded that addiction for a running addiction. Monday he will test his endurance when he runs the Boston Marathon.
"It's the oldest and most historic," he told NH1 News Contributor Gail Huff.
Matos, who is 29 years old, is fundraising for the American Red Cross.
He has company on his training route in Portsmouth. Corey Butterworth has been training for the past six months to run Boston.
Butterworth ran the Marathon last year and now he wants to improve on his 3 hour 50 minute finish time. Butterworth is raising money for the Boys and Girls Clubs.
