On April 21, 2014, the dedicated runners will once again conquer the 26.2-mile race through the iconic city of Boston. Although the pain of last years senseless acts of violence remains fresh in our minds, we, as a city, choose to channel them as motivation to stand taller and stronger than ever before. On the day of the 118th Boston Marathon, the city will once again display its relentless heartbeat to the world audience and show what it truly means to be Boston Strong.
“When times get tough, we persevere. We don’t slow down to catch our breath – we speed up. We keep moving no matter what life throws at us. This is our city. We will run.”
