A Brotherhood Of Runners
The images from Boston are seared in my memory. The white smoke, the blood on the sidewalk among the debris. The wounded lying there, surrounded by doctors and EMTs.
The death toll has risen to three, and the wounded are numbered at more than 180, at seven days after this act of no purpose.
The explosions happened about two hours after the winner, Lelissa Desisa of Ethiopia, crossed the finish line at 2:10:23. Women’s elite runner Rita Jeptoo of Kenya crossed in 2:26:10.
