My brother crossed the finish line 9 minutes before the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon last year. Now, he’s back in Boston for what I would call a “Recovery Run”. He qualified for the Boston Marathon by just two seconds and got drawn in the lottery. He has a remarkable story that will provide motivation for any hiker, biker, runner out there. You probably know from my mission statement that I hope to encourage people to be more active. I usually stick to hiking or biking but this is such a great motivation story that I wanted to share it with you. The picture is of my brother, Matt in one of his many marathons (he ran a BQ time in this one). You can link to his story by clicking here.
