It took my dad just over two weeks to finish the 2013 Boston Marathon. This was my dad’s 10th time starting the race and although he has had to drop out before due to injury and fatigue, this year he was stopped just after Kenmore Square by the two bombs that went off near the finish line. On Monday April 29th he was able to finish the last mile of the race and complete run from Kenmore to Copley, crossing the finish line and receiving his medal.
My dad plans on running again next year and hopefully I’ll get to run with him.
Sorry about the quality of the running footage, I was so focused on keeping up with my dad, keeping track of the audio levels, and dodging cars that I accidentally entered a cycle where I was recording when I didn’t want to record and not recording the things I thought I was recording.
