Perhaps you remember Boston's historically terrible 2014/15 winter. There were yetis. The city's mayor implored citizens to stop defenestrating themselves into snowbanks. The Secretary of State was ticketed for not shoveling his walk, and a woman used Tinder to find someone to help her dig her car out of a snowbank. Laughs were had.

As Massachusetts native Uzo Aduba trains for this year's Boston Marathon, the Orange Is the New Black actress says she's relying on a lesson she learned while running the New York City Marathon in 2013 to see her through to the last mile.
"Just keep going," she tells PEOPLE. "That ended up becoming a motto for my life as well, because if you just keep going eventually you're going to hit the finish line."
Aduba, 33, who has garnered Emmy and SAG awards for her gripping portrayal of Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren on the hit Netflix series, also agrees her motto could be applied to the characters serving time on the show.
"Life is going to try and beat you down," says Aduba, who is running on behalf of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. "Whether you're going through hills like Heartbreak Hill [the Boston Marathon's final, legendary incline] or hills like prison sentences, if you keep going the other side of the hill is down. You just have to push through because what's on the other side is glorious."
