Earlier this week, more than one million people joined together to watch 36,000 runners, including ten Suffolk employees, run the race of their lifetimes at the 118th Boston Marathon. All the way from the starting line in Hopkinton to the finish line on Boylston Street in Boston, inspired runners ran by cheering, supportive crowds that were 20-people deep. Whether you were on the sidelines, watching the broadcast on television, or actually participating in the event, you could feel the strong sense of community, spirit, pride and camaraderie in the air. It was a feeling that made me proud to be a Bostonian. And an American. Congratulations to everyone who ran or played a role in this year’s historic and inspiring running of our beloved Boston Marathon. I already can’t wait until next year! Until then, build smart and Boston Strong!
