Andrew Quan was lucky to avoid the blasts at this year’s Boston Marathon. But that didn’t stop him from running it again, and crossing that finish line, to honor those who were killed and injured.
On the morning of April 20th, just hours after they had apprehended the surviving suspect, I began wondering what I should do next. I was SO close to the finish; how could I do justice to all of my training, in a way that honored all of my supporters and the cancer fighters I ran for? After wrestling with the decision for quite some time, and consulting a few of my closest friends, there was only one answer: I needed to do it again. Soup to nuts. Hopkinton to Boston. 26.2. No more, no less.
Congrats on finishing, Andrew! What you did was truly awesome.
