Everett Police Detective Bobby Hall has been running around the streets of Everett busting bad guys dealing drugs for 17 years.

He is a clear headed type, no nonsense, devoted to family and job, and devoted as well to marathon running.

Since 2009, Hall has competed in 17 Marathons.

On April 15 when he rides out to Hopkinson, he will be running his 18th, the Boston Marathon.

The big difference this year since he started marathoning a decade ago, is Rachael Hall.

His daughter will be running with him and by his side. This is Rachael’s first marathon, according to Hall.

Hall, who has run marathons in New York, Chicago and Boston, said he is thrilled beyond all comprehension that his daughter will be running with him.

“I am excited. I am humbled by Rachael’s all out effort to run the marathon…and to do it with me,” he said during an interview at the Leader Herald last week.
