In the first book on an iconic event Hal Higdon a contributing editor at Runner s World tells the tale of the Boston Marathon bombings The book s title refers to the numbers on the finish line clock when the first bomb exploded Nobody is better qualified than Hal Higdon to write about this event His coffee table book Boston A Century of Running published before the th running of the world s most popular running event remains the races s definitive history But Higdon s writing credentials go beyond the sport of long distance running His three dozen books include one on the Lincoln Assassination The Union vs Dr Mudd and another on the Leopold and Loeb case featuring attorney Clarence Darrow The Crime of the Century Yes he is more than a one subject writer br br In Higdon views Boston through the eyes of those running the race You will meet George a runner from Athens birthplace of the modern marathon who at sunrise joins the eerie march of silent runners all aimed at their appointments in Hopkinton where the marathon starts You will meet Michele who at age helped her mother hand water to runners who first ran the marathon while a student at Wellesley College and who decided to run Boston again mainly because her daughter Shannon was now a student at Boston University You will meet Tracy caught on Boylston Street between the two explosions running for her life You will meet Heather a Canadian who limped into the Medical Tent with bloody socks from blisters soon to realize that worse things exist than losing a toenail br br In what may be a first Hal Higdon used social media in writing Sunday not yet expecting what might happen the next day Higdon posted a good luck message on his popular Facebook page Perfect weather the author predicted A no excuses day Within minutes runners in Boston responded Neil suggested that he was chilling before the carb a thon continues Christy boasted from her hotel room Bring it br br Then the explosions on Monday Like all runners Higdon wondered whether marathoners would ever feel safe again Beginning Tuesday runners told him They began blogging on the Internet posting to his Facebook page offering links to their stories so very similar but also so very different Over the next several hours days and weeks Higdon collected the tales of nearly runners who were there whose lives forever would be shadowed by the bombs on Boylston Street br br In Higdon presents these stories condensing and integrating them into a single smooth flowing narrative that begins with runners boarding the buses at Boston Common that continues with the wait at the Athletes Village in Hopkinton that flows through eight separate towns a story that does not end until the participants encounter the terror on Boylston Street These are not separate stories says Higdon This is one story told as it might have been seen by a single runner with pairs of eyes br br One warning before you purchase You will cry But you will laugh too because for most of those who covered the miles yards from Hopkinton to Boylston Street this was a joyous journey albeit one that ended in tragedy This is a book as much about the race and the runners in the race as it is about a terrorist attack In future years as people look back on the Boston Marathon bombings will be the book that everyone will need to have read, Lisa Jackson is a surprising cheerleader for the joys of running Formerly a committed fitness phobe she became a marathon runner at and ran her first mile ultramarathon at And unlike many runners Lisa s not afraid to finish last in fact she s done so in of the plus marathons she s completed so far But this isn t just Lisa s story it s also that of the extraordinary people she s met along the way tutu clad fun runners octogenarians mile ultrarunners whose tales of loss and laughter are sure to inspire you just as much as they ve inspired her This book is for anyone who longs to experience the sense of connection and achievement that running has to offer whether you re a nervous novice or a seasoned marathoner dreaming of doing an ultra, No description available, No description available
