boston marathon medals did not finish

The Boston Marathon bombings figuratively stopped millions of Americans in their tracks and glued them to their televisions. However, the terrorist attack literally stopped 5,700 runners from finishing the race at all.

But it would not stop them from earning their medals.

Those thousands of men and women whose months and years of training were derailed by the heinous acts of a horrible few are now able to show off their Marathon medals courtesy of none other than FedEx — along with the Boston Athletic Association, of course.

This is truly Boston Strong.
