This Sunday, Tom Barbano will run the Seattle marathon — his 20th race in just three years.

About 15,000 runners and walkers will wind through downtown Seattle on Sunday as part of the Amica Insurance Seattle Marathon, and this year’s event will include a special contingent of runners who had expected to be racing on the other side of the country.
