TORONTO, April 16, 2014 /CNW/ - The Team Canada Boston Marathon Brunch is pleased to announce 2013 marathon record holder Lanni Marchant will be dining with her fellow Canucks' to provide last-minute training advice, photos and autographs for all attendees.   Ms. Marchant broke the 28 year old women's marathon record last fall at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, catapulting her quickly among the all-time great endurance athletes in Canadian Sports history.
