Boston will bounce back

  • Follow Letters

The editorial in the April 17 paper (“The marathon is on”) was absolutely terrific. As a runner and co-owner of a local running/walking store, I can tell you that it rings true. Anyone who has run, especially a marathon, is generally resilient and cannot be held down.

Being a past participant of the Boston Marathon and seeing the hospitality of the entire city, I can tell you that next year’s event will be better than ever, as the citizens come out in full force and continue to make it great. Domestic and international runners alike will be working hard to achieve the qualifying times needed to make next year’s event.

Why will it be so great next year? Because that’s what we do. We runners come back strong and finish hard.

Okay - That's good, but just to be sure

we understand each other, let's not limit resilience to those among us who enjoy putting one foot in front of the other until their lungs burn and their legs begin to feel like boat anchors while their hearts threaten to explode.

We masochists come in all forms. We have so many ways to manifest our pain.

This is a good LTE, but it seems to limit "the come-back" to runners and other people that are involved with the marathon. I believe the LTE should have refered to ALL of Bostonians, AND the nation as a whole.
