    So glad you and your family are safe. My brother ran the Boston Marathon, I think three times now. He did not run this year. Joe and I drove the course of the race last spring. We frequent Boston and Fenway Park as often as possible. I went twice to summer school at Emerson College which is right where the Finish Line is…recognized the now shattered windows of the building immediately. The people of Boston are fabulous hosts and we shall return. :)b

    First Congratulations for qualifying for the Boston Marathon, that is a huge accomplishment. Second, great job finishing the race much less doing it under 4 hours! I hope during your training you inspired someone to set a goal and accomplish it. Great Job Tiffany! I wish the story of training, preparing, qualifying and finishing would have been worth the same headline!

  34. MaryAnn Biltoft

    Bless her heart, and congrats to Tiffany.
