Well...that's a wrap. The 2014 Boston Marathon has run its course and the athletes have started to move toward home. We think it will take a while before the race can be put into a truly historical perspective but in our humble opinion, it may have been one of the most meaningful sporting events in the last decade. We knew April 15th would come and we'd have a full year between us and the terrible events of 2013 and we knew that heroes would be racing and spectating. What we didn't know is that a hero would actually win! To our enormous delight, we watched Meb put in the performance of his life. When he lifted the tape at the finish, he lifted all of us with it.
In the Coeur office, we almost went hoarse cheering for our Ambassadors who were racing. Emily came in at 3hrs and 4 minutes, Katie followed at 3hrs and 19 minutes and Melissa crossed in 3hrs and 51 minutes. All three exemplified heart and courage on the course and we send our most heartfelt congratulations to them.
