Local Runner Remembers Boston
Jeff Matlock ran the Boston Marathon on April 15 and witnessed the chaos. Thankfully, he was not harmed, as he had finished the race and was in his hotel room long before the explosion happened. He went down later to wait for his wife to finish the race. After the bombs went off, he could not locate his wife, Melissa, for quite a while; both were worried about the other but finally found one another.
Matlock’s friend and fellow marathoner, Jeff Edmonds, wrote about the day on his blog: “The Boston Marathon is, in many ways, a celebration of human effort. We come together on Patriots Day to remind ourselves of the joy and pain of work and effort. Everyone who has taken the marathon seriously knows that to make your peace with the marathon means learning to love the grind over the result, the pain over the triumph, and the hard push over the finishing time. Marathoners embrace these things because in a race so long, there are few perfect races. Doing well is always just that: doing well. We never do our best, but we do enough. That’s what endurance means.” Click here to read the full article.
There were many stories of endurance and bravery that came out of the Boston Marathon bombing. The Matlocks have expressed their wish for the public to remember what happened that day and to continue to help the victims of the bombing. There are many places you can donate online.
