A Boston Marathon to Remember
All MVS runners and volunteers made it home unharmed by the tragic events that happened at the Boston Marathon finish line yesterday.
Many were shaken up quite a bit, especially those that just finished or were on Boylston St when the explosions occurred, but they were not hurt physically. Many who were left on the road when the race was stopped at 25.8 miles were frustrated and disappointed that they could not finish their marathon, but understood their safety was preserved by the decision to keep them away from the crime scene.
MVS volunteers worked hard to find our runners and guide them back to the bus for the ride home. All MVS members got back safely and now have memories they will never forget.
