BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) – Former professional racing driver Danica Patrick is training for the 2021 Boston Marathon.
Three years ago, the 39-year-old retired from professional auto racing and has been pursuing several other ventures.
She told WBZ-TV that she had always wanted to run a marathon and decided to choose Boston as her first.
“When the opportunity came up to run Boston, that was like a for sure yes,” Patrick said. “It wasn’t a put it off another year kind of thing, that was like let’s go.”
Just last week, Patrick documented one of her final training sessions on Instagram. “Last long run,” she wrote. “Two weeks left to the day.”
