Official Marathon shirt makes tribute journey to London

It was a race unlike any that Southborough native and marathoner Barrett Wilson-Murphy had ever entered, featuring a Delta Air Lines flight attendant, a generous stranger, a very special yellow-and-blue shirt, and a mad dash to the finish by his own mother.

Wilson-Murphy, a Boston College Law School student, has been studying this semester in London. A four-time Boston Marathoner, he will be one of the runners in Sunday’s London Marathon.
