We are heartsick for our brothers and sisters who ran the Boston Marathon and found themselves part of tragedy and for those workers, the givers, who annually take that special pleasure of creating a situation which makes so many thousands of our running and rolling brothers and sisters so happy. May you heal completely. Our thoughts go to families and friends of runners and workers. Our thanks go to the first responders, whom we watched with gratitude and awe at their quiet professionalism. An EMT holds a bloody hand and puts his ear close to the lips of a person on a stretcher, holding demons at bay in the incomprehensible scene. If we must have this carnage in this time of cruel acts, we have competent, loving answers. We are thankful to you. Radio messages overheard between dispatchers and their fire, police, and medical agents told of angels at work, complete training on display as each contact conducted in partnership with the others the grisly business of trying to make sense of smoke, broken glass, and still-spilling blood. --Lennie Tucker
Coreen Steinbach (W60) also won a gold medal Thursday in the 3,000m with a time of 12:28.86. Team USA also picked up three silver medals and one bronze medal. The performances bring the total of American gold medals to eight for the week and a total of 22 overall, which is currently the sixth most medals among all countries.
We congratulate Coreen Steinbach on her two awards, USATF Age-Group Runner of the Year and New England Runner of the Year, and Kevin Collins and Maegan Krifchin on their awards "New England Runner of the Year".
