BOSTON (AP) - Cancer couldn't stop Mary Shertenlieb, so she wasn't about to let rain, wind or cold slow her.
Shertenlieb crossed the Boston Marathon finish line at 12:18 a.m. Tuesday, about 13 hours after she started, to become 2018's last finisher.
The leukemia survivor was at mile 15 on Monday when she went to a medical tent, shivering, with purple lips, thinking she had hypothermia.
She called her husband, Rich, and he suggested she come home, take a hot shower, put on dry clothes, then restart the run.
The couple later went back to the spot she left off and finished together, holding hands.
She raised about $33,000 for cancer research.
Rich Shertenlieb is co-host of the Toucher and Rich Show on Boston sports talk radio station WBZ-FM, known as 98.5 The Sports Hub.
