Gary Allen has run the Boston Marathon many times, he knows all the officials of the BAA and he has access most of us could only dream of. He's on today to talk about where he was, what he saw and where he'll be in April 2014. James Winston is a detective with the Chicago Police Department's bomb and arson unit. James is also an active marathon runner. James talks to us about his impressions of the blast, our safety and his outlook on the sport.
The Boston Marathon is our Super Bowl. One way or another, you have to earn your way in - whether it's via qualifying or fundraising. Each year Boston welcomes first time Boston runners and you'll hear from 4 of them on this show. You'll be amazed to hear about their path to Boston. None of them started as runners and they each have a remarkable journey to this start line. We'll also hear from them about the advice they're getting, plus we have 4 Boston Marathon trivia questions. Listen in and be inspired as Heather Melito Dezan, Deborah Volin, Tim Christoni and Dennis Lebman share their stories.
When Terrorism Comes To YOUR Backyard When the two bombs blew my city apart at 2:50 pm on April 15, 2013, I was leading my group on the Cultural Caribbean Cruise that had been planned for more than a year. We had just docked in San Juan, Puerto Rico and I was able to turn my phone back on and check my email massages. As I finished that task and prepared to get off the ship to enjoy parts of the island, my phone rang. It was my childhood friend, Denise Gray Felder, calling in a panic. “Carole! Where are you? Are you and Michelle safe?” How close are you to the explosion that just happened at the finish line of the Boston Marathon?”
I thanked my friend for calling and reassured her that we were thousands of miles away from the scene of the amazing event. I collected my thoughts, wiped the shock off my face, and desperately searched the internet for more information on this breaking story. I had just sent off unrelated emails to friends and colleagues and learned that one friend had just handed the award to the winning female marathon runner more than half an hour before the first bomb exploded.
I took this terrorist act PERSONALLY. These two demonic young monsters tried to destroy MY city.
And as the chair of the Multicultural Committee of the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau, I took these bombings PERSONALLY. Our committee and our Bureau have worked for nearly 20 years to eradicate the stigma of racial hostility that still lingers with some people. This incident was a personal affront to all of the efforts of our committee and Bureau. I was concerned that it would further hurt the Boston brand and keep diverse conventions, conferences, meetings and family reunions away from our city.
Join me in today’s program and learn why Boston is MY city...a Boston Strong city.
