Our First Boston Marathon

"You didn't have to hear or witness the explosions to feel their horrible effects. I'm so grateful I was spared the knowledge of what was happening until after I was safely with my kids and twin in our hotel. I hope there will be ways we can show our support for those still in the hospital and with months of recovery ahead." @LeahCville

"Thoughts are with injured & their loved ones. May they receive support for long-term physical & emotional recovery process." @TwinsRun

We're still trying to find the words to write our stories about our first Boston Marathon. In the meantime, we'd like to share these words written by others.
