Robert Coronado, 47


I’ve always wanted to run Boston. Back in high school, my running buddies and I would dream of finishing the race together. When I heard what happened at the marathon, my heart sank for the city, the injured, the survivors, and the race. I may not run Boston next year, but whatever marathon I do run, I’ll run it in memory of this tragic event.
