“To victims of terrorism whose innocence was ripped out of them with the unseeing heartlessness of bomb shrapnel.”
A Mangled Marathon takes reports of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings a step beyond the terrorist blasts that killed three persons and injured more than 260.
It reports on the legal defense of the prime suspect, how victims are coping and the broader social implications of the bombings.
In a note to the reader, the author writes, “Although this book focuses on the April 15, 2013 bombings at the Boston Marathon, its victims and the prosecution of the prime suspect, it is equally about “lone wolf” terrorists. Lone wolves refer to terrorists who plot their attacks alone, usually with no organization to support them and no official links to violent groups. There is almost no way to know their next target until they strike. U.S. intelligence agencies call them perhaps the biggest terrorist threat to the United States and its allies.”
“But before the race was over, few people cared who won or lost. Boston’s Patriots Day, a day of festivities to celebrate the American Revolution, was about to become the latest nightmare in America’s ongoing war on terrorism…”
“The pungent smell of gunpowder hung in the air while shrapnel, ball bearings and nails littered the streets near the blast sites. Spectators left behind backpacks, cell phones and handmade signs with runners’ names. Doctors at Brigham and Women’s Hospital later treated one patient whose body had been pierced by 12 carpenter’s nails.”
A Mangled Marathon was written by veteran journalist and Washington, D.C., lawyer Tom Ramstack. He has reported on court cases for much of his three decades career as a journalist as well as defended a few criminal defendants.

The Total Tutor will interview om Derderian, author of The Boston Marathon: A Celebration of the World’s Premier Race.
om Derderian (1949-) is a coach, author and journalist. As a high school senior in Milford, he was accepted to Boston University, Northeastern, and UMass. Having won his school conference championship in the mile, he was a credible candidate for a spot on the cross-country and track teams at any of the three, but chose University of Massachusetts in Amherst and graduated in 1973 with a degree in English Literature and Journalistic Studies. He ran on the varsity track and cross country teams there. He ran a 4:25 mile and competed in the steeplechase.
A running success both on and off the roads, Tom's accomplishments include running in the Olympic trials in both 1972 and 1976, numerous New England road championships, a 2:19:04 Boston Marathon in 1975.
Derderian was in third place at the the 1981 Portsmouth (NH) Marketplace 10K, with the first two runners out of sight. When he came to an unmarked intersection, he took a wrong turn and brought a large pack of several hundred runners off course with him adding about two minutes to the course. The pack approached the finish line from the wrong direction, and the race officials had to reverse the finish line after the first two runners finished.
Derderian worked for Nike in the 1970s and 80s in product development and design. He earned several U.S. patents for his creative work in footwear and apparel.
Tom Derderian has been cross-country chairman for the USA Track and Field New England Association and vice president of the organization. Tom is a senior writer for New England Runner magazine. His work has appeared in Runner's World, Running Times, Marathon and Beyond, Track and Field News, and other running publications.
On the eve of The Boston Marathon, our guest Geoff Smith 2 X Winner reflects on past achievements as a World Class runner and the state of running today. What does The Boston Marathon mean to him, given the tragic attack on America’s most important Marathon?
Geoff Smith was the man to beat at all the major races back in the early 80’s, having been edged out by Rod Dixon at the New York Marathon in 1983 by a mere 8 seconds after leading the race for 26 miles. He won Boston handily in both 1984 and 1985, a true running legend with a lot to share. This is a show you don’t want to miss!
Join me on this special episode of Own Your Life as we reflect and remember the Boston Marathon Bombing of 2013. Special guest callers will include runners from last year's race, Becca Pizzi and Ken Doucette. Rick Pizzi of Pizzi Farms in Waltham, Mass will be joining the discussion. What lessons have we learned in the years that followed? We will discuss the resilient nature of the people of Boston and how this tragedy brought a community and a nation together to become Boston Strong. We will also discuss the impact of the bombings on security measures at different venues. We will describe how people can be aware of their surroundings during large events. I will also give some of my reflections from my crisis response to Boston during the bombings.
