After training for 650 miles all summer long, Angie Dove Hatch of Hudson wasn't going to let Superstorm Sandy stop her from running her marathon.

After all, she says, she'd be letting down her downers and, more importantly, the children she had raised nearly $20,000 to support. After having adopted three of her four children herself, she wanted to support other children through "Make Change for Children."

She set off at 10:05 a.m. Sunday, the time she would have started in New York, and wove her way through the streets of Hudson to her finish line by the river. Neighbors lined the street and some even took turns running with her so she was never alone.
