Boston 2013 – One month later

EPIC_shirt_5-12-13May 14th:  New developments continue to surprise.  The group of runners I encountered in Santa Monica soon after my return from Boston got in touch with me and invited me for dinner.  This was the group I saw all wearing “Stay Epic” t-shirts, with “Nothing can keep us down.  Boston 4-15-13” on the back of the shirt.  I now own my own shirt.  And I met the original Epic Man. 

The story is best told, by my host, in this blog.  The Epic Man  has quite the story of his own about running Boston – well, let’s just say it involved a lot more than running, but take a look for yourself:

Recalling the first tribute run I attended upon my return, the one at the Manhattan Beach Pier, a young man spoke of his uncle,  a Redondo Beach man, who would be spending more than two months in a Boston Hospital.  His name is John Odom and here is his update:  John Odom Recovery Fund.
