White Rock Running Co-op members Allyson Gump and Brent Yost prepare to toe the line at the historic Boston Marathon.

Dozens of Dallas area runners will tackle the historic Boston Marathon this morning, including several from the East Dallas based White Rock Running Co-op and Dallas Running Club.

Pictured left are two WRRC members Allyson Gump and Brent Yost, pre race.  Other neighborhood runners that we know of include Nicole Kalogeropoulos Studer, Teel Tishgart, David Renfro, Jason Mayes, Julie Mungioli, Sabine Norris, Stacey Jolly, Dane Fergusson, Steve Pfiffner, Shaheen Sattar and Craig “Junior” Miller from The Ticket radio station (if you know of someone else, put them in the comments section).

You can see how they are doing by searching a name here.

We hope these runners brought their Texas oomph! with them today, as record-high temps are expected in Beantown.
